UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, the area’s largest provider of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care with over 30 surgeons and physicians at 11 locations throughout Western New York, invites non-profit organizations to submit applications to receive grant funding through the CommunityCare program.
CommunityCare is a grant program offering up to $10,000 in funding for local non-profit 501(c) (3) agencies in the health and wellness sector. $5000 of that money has been allocated to the Roswell Park Donor Center, proudly sponsoring the 20th annual Ride for Roswell, one of Buffalo's most successful fundraisers. The other $5000 is available to eligible organizations.
“We understand the great need for funding within organizations providing these important programs in our community,” said Amanda Clark, Community Relations and Marketing Specialist for UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine.
A committee will choose recipients, and the $5,000 will be divided amongst the recipients if more than one is chosen. Each application will be evaluated and selected for inclusion based on economic needs, the mission of the organization and goals for utilization of the funds. Recipients of the CommunityCare program will receive grant funding to help further their programs in fields that align with the values of UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine: Compassion, Innovation & Collaboration. Eligible applicants include non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations in health and wellness, sports and fitness, activities for the mentally disabled, men's and women's health, geriatric health and other relevant industries.
The deadline to submit applications for CommunityCare is 5:00 PM, October 1st.
Organizations selected by UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine to receive CommunityCare funding are scheduled to be announced October 31st.
