Hospital seeks grant applicants

GOSHEN — Indiana University Health Goshen is accepting applications for a 2014 Community Benefit Fund grant.

The Community Benefit Fund is one way for IU Health Goshen to assist local non-profit organizations in their efforts to improve the health of Goshen and surrounding communities.

Every year, the IU Health Goshen board of directors designates a percentage of the previous year’s operational budget for the hospital’s Community Benefit Fund, through which the grants are awarded each spring. The coming year marks the 16th anniversary of the health system’s commitment.

“We don’t have a monopoly on ideas and activities for making our population healthier,” said Dr. Del Good, chairperson of the Charitable Giving Committee of the IU health Goshen board of directors. “We get an amazing return on investment by awarding grants to other non-profit organizations to continue their good work. In previous years, many grant recipients’ efforts were focused on issues like diabetes, obesity, access to health care, and cancer. Those are our priorities, too. Why not tackle those problems together?”

Nonprofit organizations whose work meets the needs of the community and whose mission is consistent with that of IU Health Goshen are invited to apply. Organizations can apply for project grants and matching grants by submitting a single application. The fund does not support capital acquisitions, building projects or construction projects.

Applications must be completed online at http://iuhealthgoshencbf.org/ by Jan. 10. Anyone with questions should call 574-364-2457.

The Charitable Giving Committee of IU Health Goshen’s board of directors will evaluate all applications against the general criteria in the Community Benefit Fund Policy. Grant and matching fund recipients will be notified by mail by in April 2014.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
