GE Foundation Awards $500,000 In Grants To Two Community Health Centers In Minneapolis

Stocks in this article: GE

The GE Foundation, the philanthropic organization of GE, and the GE Corporate Diversity Council today announced a total of $500,000 in grants to two Minneapolis community health care centers: Neighborhood HealthSource – Fremont Clinic and Southside Community Health Services, Inc. – Southside Medical Clinic. Funding will be used to increase access to primary care for uninsured and underserved populations across the city.

The GE Foundation provided the grants as part of the GE Developing Health™ program, which provides funding and GE employee volunteer support to non-profit health centers across the United States. Each community health center will receive a $250,000 grant distributed over the next two years. These grants are the first Developing Health grants awarded in the state of Minnesota.

“We’re thrilled to bring GE’s Developing Health program to Minneapolis. GE employees in the Twin Cities have a strong commitment to volunteerism and improving access to health in the communities where we live and work,” said Deborah Elam, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, GE. “We look forward to working with these two health centers and supporting their mission in the Minneapolis community.”

GE’s Developing Health™ is a multi-year, $50 million program that aims to help improve access to primary care in targeted underserved communities across the U.S. The program aligns with GE’s healthymagination initiative, a commitment to reduce costs, improve quality and increase access in health care.

A sizeable GE employee volunteer program accompanies the grants. GE’s Twin Cities Affinity Networks will work closely with the community health centers to provide skill-based support and best practice sharing at Neighborhood HealthSource and Southside Community Health Services. GE Volunteers teams and health center staff will focus on business-based process improvements and other value-added skills to benefit patients and workflows.

“On behalf of the patients we serve, we are grateful to the GE Foundation for their financial support; and for the employee volunteer service they will make available to our organization as part of this new partnership,” said Steve Knutson, Executive Director, Neighborhood HealthSource. “With the enhanced resources provided through this partnership, we will continue to expand the reach of our mission.”
