Kaiser Permanente awarded over $60,000 to multiple nonprofits around Santa Clarita to celebrate their success around the community.

Kaiser Permanente awarded $62,626 in grant funding to 10 well-deserving community organizations in the area and, in 2015, Kaiser Permanente Panorama City awarded grants totaling $451,940 to 47 San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, and Antelope Valley organizations.

“Improving health in the communities that we serve is vital to our mission at Kaiser Permanente,” said Kaiser Permanente Physician-In-Charge of Santa Clarita David Wong, MD. “Partnering with local community organizations and supporting these groups with community benefit funding ensures that we are making steadfast efforts to overcome critical health barriers for those most vulnerable to health disparities in the Santa Clarita Valley.”

Grants are awarded annually to non-profit organizations committed to expanding access to care for lower-income and uninsured individuals, improving education, prevention, early detection, treatment of chronic diseases, and efforts to promote healthy eating and active living to combat increased obesity rates through medical, environmental, and social changes.
