    Grants

    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.
