COVID-19 Matching Gift Application

The ISPE Foundation Board is pleased to offer $10,000 in matching Foundation Grants, in support of local efforts to address the ongoing pandemic.

Grants are available for up to $2,500 to support new projects requiring funds through 31 December 2020. The grants will provide a dollar-for-dollar match for project funds spent by the Affiliate and Chapter or Communities of Practice. Each Affiliate and Chapter or Communities of Practice is eligible for one grant only. We hope these additional funds will further sustain your efforts to prevent, detect and respond to COVID-19.

Based on applications received to date, we predict there will be considerable funding beyond the original matching gift grant application deadline of June 30th. All applications received by this original deadline date will receive priority review. We ask that you continue to submit your applications through October 1st. Submissions received after June 30 will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

In addition to extending the deadline until October 1st or the exhaustion of these funds, whichever occurs first, we are expanding the eligibility criteria to apply for these grants. Previously, the grant was limited to our Affiliates or Chapters. We are now opening this grant opportunity to ISPE networking groups and Communities of Practice.
