Guidelines for the Application

map of Highland Park and surrounding areasThe Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park (HFHP) was established in 2000 to benefit the community-at-large by supporting health care services, social services, health education programs, health and wellness programs, scholarships for health care, and other similar services in the geographic service area of Highland Park Hospital.  The map, pictured at the right, demonstrates our target service area.

Please be mindful of our new requirements, listed below, before applying for a grant. 

  • Your application should clearly demonstrate that the organization is within a 15 to 20-mile radius of Highland Park Hospital (Rt. 120 to the North, Rt. 45 to the West, and Rt. 58 to the South). Please refer to the map which delineates the immediate Highland Park Hospital service area, the adjacent communities, and the outlying ones.
  • The population served must reside within those boundaries. The organization’s principal office is preferred to be within the defined geographic area.  If it is not, you will need to show that the program and individuals who benefit from it, are within the defined service area.
  • Please be specific about the population served by demonstrating in numbers and by percentage, where they reside and how much of the program’s participants they represent.
  • We will be requiring metrics that reflect the success rate of the program and of the impact on the participants, specifically those individuals in our service area.
  • We are interested in the sustainability of your program. Please enumerate your other funding sources.
  • The Foundation will not consider the following types of grant requests:
    • Endowments
    • Fundraising events including sponsorships
    • Debt reduction
    • Direct grants to individuals
    • Programs outside the service area of Highland Park Hospital
    • Capital Improvements
