Traditionally, the Opportunity Grant program of the Greater Rochester Health Foundation (GRHF) has opened in mid to late May of each year.  As I begin my tenure at the foundation, I believe it is important to understand how the Opportunity Grant program and GRHF can best support you and your efforts.  I am postponing the launch of this program until later this year in order to gather information from you on this grant opportunity.

As our partners in improving health status in the greater Rochester region, you are in a unique position to provide important feedback to us.  Honest, reflective critique is critical to the Greater Rochester Health Foundation’s ability to learn, adapt, and generate positive changes in health.

To get this feedback, we have developed a confidential survey for our grantees and applicants.  Please be candid. For us to grow, it is important to learn what is and isn’t working from your perspective.  The survey will be open until May 31, 2019.

If you have any questions about this process or survey, please let me know.  I can best be reached by email at

Thank you for taking the time to help us assess and improve our performance.
