Foundation Relations

Henry Ford Health System partners with foundations from across the country to bolster world-class care, community programs, groundbreaking research and much more. We understand that foundations are conscientious with their resources, wisely matching their giving priorities with vital community needs. That’s why the Henry Ford Foundation Relations team works collaboratively with foundation colleagues to identify projects that coincide with an organization’s interests and goals. Together we are fostering a happier, healthier Michigan—and beyond.

Our Foundation Relations team:

  • Connects foundation partners with Henry Ford Health System physicians and staff who champion projects that match the foundation’s goals and mission.
  • Writes, submits and manages the grant application process for hundreds of unique opportunities per year.
  • Writes and submits hundreds of Continuing Medical Education grants each year.
  • Offers support for physicians and Henry Ford staff in the grant application process, including grant writing, review and consultation, and maintains an active list of grant opportunities for Henry Ford employees.
