    Extending the reach and impact of donation dollars

    We not only try to improve the health and well-being of children directly through our programs, but we also work with non-profit organizations around the world that are making an immediate, positive impact on children who need it most. Grants to these organizations extend the reach and impact of RMHC and move donation dollars quickly through to areas in their time of need.

    Grants in Action
    We extend our reach by awarding millions of dollars to organizations who focus on providing access to health care.

    Training (ReVAST)” program that will provide reconstructive surgeries to approximately

    We are currently in the process of refining our global grant focus to ensure that we advance our mission by reaching children with the greatest needs around the world and ensuring that our resources contribute to impactful and measurable outcomes.  During this process, RMHC will not be receiving grant applications from other non-profit organizations.  We anticipate the next grant cycle to begin in early 2016.
