2012– 2013 ANNUAL REPORT


LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY

T

he Jenkins Foundation is dedicated to improving the health and wellness of the Greater Richmond region. We work in collaboration with many nonprofit leaders, health care professionals and other foundations to support a variety of organizations essential to building a healthy and thriving region. Last year alone, we proudly awarded nearly $1.5 million in grants to 33 deserving local nonprofits. Our board believes that continuous study of health trends and a focused grantmaking strategy are what allow us to make the greatest impact. As we strive to contribute to the overall health and safety of residents in the metro Richmond region, we recognize that this entails a broad range of services and our grants reflect this. Recent funding has enabled a local farm to grow and distribute fresh produce to underserved neighborhoods, area schools to implement bullying prevention programs and health clinics to provide both preventative and acute care health services to low-income individuals and families. Our ability to make a difference is dependent on the many people who put our resources to work every day. It is because of your hard work and commitment that we feel fortunate to be a part of such a generous community. We are inspired by the results we have achieved thus far and we look forward to continuing our work together to further enhance the quality of life in our region. With confidence, we know our collective efforts will continue to make a positive impact for generations to come.

GRANT PRIORITIES

T

he Jenkins Foundation is committed to expanding access to community-based services through programs and organizations that have the potential to make a significant impact on the quality of health in our region, especially for uninsured, underserved, or vulnerable populations. The Foundation’s funding priorities fall under two focus areas: • Access to Health Care Services—The Foundation’s primary goal is to support access to health education and prevention services, mental health care, oral health care and primary care services. • Key Community Health Issues—The Foundation seeks to reduce risky behaviors and promote safe and healthy environments by supporting substance abuse treatment and prevention, unintended pregnancy prevention and violence prevention. In addition, the Foundation is committed to the long-term viability of the organizations it supports, and will consider capacity building grants that strengthen an agency’s ability to better serve its clients. The Foundation will also consider a limited number of proposals outside the above stated focus areas.
