September 2019

BHHS Legacy Foundation (Phoenix, AZ)

BHHS Legacy Foundation announced grant awards for the first half of 2019. Between January and June, nearly $3 million was awarded to support community organizations that work to improve good health.

Approximately 50 organizations and programs received funding, in both the Phoenix, Arizona and Tri-State regions of the foundations’ geographic service area. For example, a grant for $125,000 was awarded to Banner Health Foundation to launch the Family-Centered Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome program, which will allow Banner Health’s largest NICUs to implement a new model of treating substance-exposed newborns, reducing the amounts of opioids used and shortening the time to discharge.

This collaboration with Boys & Girls Clubs will significantly expand access to vital dental care for children in the Greater Phoenix, Arizona region.

To help create the next generation of health care workers, Mohave Community College (MCC) received $125,000 to provide scholarships for nursing and medical allied health students. Since its inception, BHHS Legacy Foundation has provided more than 250 scholarships to MCC students.

Meanwhile, an award of $15,000 was made to Phoenix Theatre’s Partners that Heal program, which uses specially trained actors to deliver unique play-based, improvisational care to children and families undergoing traumatic medical diagnoses.

In an effort to impact social and cultural change, the foundation awarded a grant of $25,000 to support Valley Leadership with the important work they are doing to tackle the opioid crisis in Arizona. A second-year grant of $36,000 was awarded to the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits for their Nonprofit Lifecycles Assessment Workshops to coach nonprofit professionals and their boards on the importance of planning and strategic direction using the seven lifecycles stages curriculum from Dr. Susan Kenny Stevens.
