Current Funding Awards

The Osteopathic Heritage Foundations seek to positively impact the health and quality of life for vulnerable populations in central and southeastern Ohio, while supporting osteopathic medical education and research on a regional and national level.

 The Foundations advance this mission through strategic partnerships, multi-year and multi-faceted funding commitments, funding collaborations and significant investments in innovative solutions demonstrating long-term impact for vulnerable populations, measurable outcomes and sustainability.

As health-related needs in the communities we serve change over time, the priorities of the Foundations also evolve, but remain rooted in our mission to improve health and quality of life and advance osteopathic medicine.

 The lists below provide examples of current funding awards.
