As a women’s organization, Alpha Phi Foundation places special emphasis on women’s heart health. In 1993, Alpha Phi Foundation designed an annual grant—the Heart to Heart Grant—to encourage research and education to lessen the impact of heart disease in women.
Since its inception, the Heart to Heart Grant has invested over $1.58 million into women’s heart health initiatives.
The Heart to Heart Grant now has two arms of eligibility for two different grants, Clinical and Community:
Clinical: projects that are traditional bench/clinical research. These projects may be from hospitals, universities/schools, or research programs.
Community: projects more focused on community engagement, education, and programming as opposed to research. These proposals may come from hospitals, universities/schools, or community organizations.
Institutions must have public charity status/nonprofit status under IRS Code Section 501(c)(3) or a Charitable Designation Number if in Canada. The proposed project/program must target care/education of women, regardless if it is Clinical or Community.
