Deadline: July 23rd, 2014 Funding: $50,000 The Aetna Foundation is dedicated to promoting wellness, health, and access to high-quality health care while supporting the communities it serves. The foundation’s Regional Grants program funds community wellness initiatives that serve those who are most at risk for poor health — low-income, underserved, and minority populations — in Aetna's priority cities and states.
In 2014, grants of up to $50,000 will target communities where healthy food can be difficult to buy and where social and environmental factors may limit people’s ability to be physically active. The foundation is particularly interested in programs that provide nutrition education and help increase the availability of affordable fresh fruits and vegetables and/or programs that provide opportunities for physical activity.
Typically, Regional Grants support school-based or afterschool nutrition and fitness programs that help children learn healthy habits at an early age, community-based nutrition education programs for children and families, efforts to increase the availability or affordability of fresh fruits and vegetables in communities, and community gardening and urban farming activities for children and families.
Priority consideration will be given to programs that focus on healthy food choices and physical activity through a racial and ethnic health equity lens.

Rooted in this mission, our grantmaking goal is to strengthen a collective recognition of the oneness of humanity.

Fostering a Global Consciousness of Oneness: Contribute to a growing awareness of what unifies rather than divides people, and evolve our understanding of what it means to live in harmony with the whole of life.
Indigenous Cultures: Empower, encourage, and protect the flourishing of Indigenous Peoples, cultures, and languages that carry forward ancient traditions of kinship with all of life.

Deadline: Rolling Funding: $25,000-$50,000 To ensure that all children get the development and education they need as a foundation for independence and success, the foundation seeks opportunities to invest in early child development (ages zero to eight), leading to reading proficiency by third grade, high school graduation, and pathways to meaningful employment. All children need the support of parents and community to assure their healthy development and education. The foundation is partnering with organizations working on early childhood education, with a commitment to whole child development, educational advocacy, family literacy, innovative educational practices, policy reform and lifelong learning. The foundation focuses on communities where children and families are most in need of high quality early intervention to achieve success by third grade and maintain it beyond. The foundation's approach is both bottom-up and top-down. The foundation seeks opportunities to increase its strategic presence by investing in national organizations and their networks. At state and local levels, the foundation simultaneously explores approaches to helping children and families in ways supported by their local communities.
