Mini Grants – Mighty Purpose

Meeting needs is our mission, but helping patients is our passion. That’s why the Foundation allocates $160,000 of unrestricted donations annually for mini grants.

“This is a wonderful way for hospital staff to identify a need that enhances the level of care that our patients at Morristown Medical Center receive,” says Bonnie Gannon, director of corporate and foundation relations.  

During the first quarter of 2017, five of 19 applicants received funding of up to $20,000 each. Among them was a project that will provide 55 uninsured or financially burdened COPD patients with a free supply of inhalers for six months. Another project will measure the usefulness of ultrasonic vein mapping to guide successful IV placement, especially for patients who are ‘hard sticks.’ And yet another will deploy 12 iPads on rolling carts so patients who are hearing impaired or have limited proficiency in English will have access to interpreters via video.
