Mayo Clinic has a long history of supporting organizations working to advance diversity, equity and inclusion. In 2020, employees of Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System demonstrated their own passion for this work by making financial contributions to the EverybodyIN Fund for Change. Commitments made between August 5 and September 5 were matched by funds from Mayo Clinic, resulting in a commitment of $200,000 to be awarded via Fund for Change grants. These grants are intended to support nonprofit organizations working to fight racism and advance equity, diversity and inclusion.
Fund for Change grants will be distributed across the communities served by Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System. Each of the three Mayo Clinic destination sites and four Mayo Clinic Health System regions will award funds, with the amount based on the number of staff who work there.
We invite proposals that will benefit racial and ethnic minority groups and the communities in which they live. Applicants should consider how their efforts will contribute to eliminating racism, promoting social justice, increasing diversity, and advancing equity and inclusion for diverse members of our communities.
