Fund to Accelerate Innovation toward Healing & Hope

The guiding philosophy of FAITH2 is to extend the mission of our ministry beyond our facilities into the communities and neighborhoods we serve. It is our desire to act as a catalyst for positive change in our community by funding strategic partnerships that are collaborating in support of identified and documented community health needs.

In 2013, the FAITH2 program awarded more than $92,000 to six local agencies for programs that impact identified and demonstrated community health needs related to access to care, access to healthy food, counseling, and services. 

“Each of the programs being funded presents an exceptional opportunity for helping the community to address chronic health needs,” said past Foundation Board Chair Mark Palmer. “They show true innovation and will help to build community capacity moving forward.”

2014 FAITH2 Organizations:

Promise Healthcare - $103,824
Champaign County Health Care Consumers - $35,000
Prosperity Gardens - $11,500
