Connect for Health Challenge
Strong relationships with friends and neighbors help people to be more involved in their communities, perform better in school and live happier and healthier lives.
The Connect for Health Challenge is a new grantmaking initiative of the Blue Cross Foundation which plans to award up to $500,000 to nonprofits, schools and local units of government to support efforts that strengthen social connections in low-income communities across Minnesota.
We are excited to announce the 22 Connect for Health grantees! Thank you to the over 5,000 Minnesotans that voted in the Connect for Health Challenge.
A big congratulations to Native American Somali Peacemakers on receiving a grant of $100,000!
