GrantWatch, Health Affairs Blog’s section on health philanthropy, brings you news and views of what foundations are funding in health policy and health care.
We seek blog posts from foundation staffers and grantees, as well as commentators on health philanthropy. We would like to hear about innovative initiatives funded by foundations, results of foundation-funded projects, changes in funding priorities (and why), and suggestions of what foundations could and should be funding but are not.
We are looking for original posts—not previously published elsewhere.
And we are particularly interested in candid posts examining both the successes and challenges of foundation initiatives. This information helps the fields of philanthropy and health policy. Posts about more than one foundation are also desirable.
Blog posts considered by GrantWatch need to go beyond what is in a typical press release or e-alert—that is, bloggers need to provide some context about the broader problem being addressed. Self-promotional tones should be avoided.
Posts can be as short as 600 words, but please try to avoid a word count exceeding 1,500 words.
Read three examples of GrantWatch posts: “A Funder Collaborative To Integrate Oral Health Into Primary Care Sets the Bar,” by Brenda Sharpe; “Could Foundations Have Mounted A Better Defense Of The ACA?” by Michael Booth; and “New Initiative Explores The Intersection Of Education And Mental Health,” by Nathaniel Counts and Paul Gionfriddo.
