Coming Soon: Advocacy Grant Applications 

With advocacy as part of our mission, we remain committed to offering multi-year, unrestricted advocacy grants and to providing technical assistance to advance the advocacy capacity of our nonprofit partners.
We will reopen the Advocacy Grant program for three-year, unrestricted grants to current and new grantees in 2019. This means that another three years of funding will be made available through our competitive quarterly grant process for organizations that are focused on systems-change advocacy work related to increasing access to health services or preventing childhood trauma.
On October 3rd from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., we will host a mandatory workshop for any organization interested in applying or reapplying for an advocacy grantAttendees at this workshop will learn the specifics of this grant application and receive tips and tools for crafting a successful proposal.

Meet Our Summer Intern: Delaney Lackey


Delaney Lackey joined our team from the Masters of Public Health program at Vanderbilt University.  Delaney’s interest in public health was sparked during a trip to South Africa at the age of 17 where she witnessed the positive impact that public health can have. Her passion for public health took her to Juniata College, where she received her degree in Health Communications and Education. 
During her short time at The Trust, Delaney has written a preliminary and full grant proposal, attended site visits, and participated in our grantmaking process from start to finish. Delaney has been able to apply her love of excel spreadsheets and research to a variety of advocacy-related projects.  In addition to interning at The Healing Trust, Delaney works as a graduate assistant for the Vanderbilt Department of Health Policy, volunteers with the Lwala Community Alliance and was elected by her peers to serve as the Vanderbilt MPH program’s representative on the School of Medicine’s Honor Council.  She is drawn to working with under-served and under-represented communities and is interested in working with grassroots organizations that concentrate efforts on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) as well as the prevention of infectious diseases. 
Here are a few of the books that we are reading.
