Granting and Strategic Priorities
AIH considers requests for grant funding three times each year (February, June, and October), and gives preference to requests that align with its strategic priorities, which are to:
Measurably increase the well-being of the residents of Ardmore and Carter County, Okla.
Influence the U.S. health system to bring Lifestyle Medicine into the mainstream of clinical medical practice.
Improve health behaviors through funding programs that promote purpose, nutrition, movement, community, connectedness, and sleep.
Grant Application Process
AIH only considers requests from organizations designated by the IRS as 501(c)(3) public charities, or from government agencies.
If you have an AIH grant-funded project currently in progress, you must submit your final report(s) before applying for a new grant. (We sometimes approve exceptions for multi-phase projects.)
We have a 2-step application process:
Step 1: Complete and submit a Letter of Inquiry Form
Review the Granting & Strategic Priorities (above) to ensure your proposal is a good fit for our funding priorities.
Request the link to our grants portal by contacting Kati Thompson, Program Associate, using the contact form below.
Complete and submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) form via our online grants portal.
We will review your LOI, and may ask for a follow-up conversation.
Step 2: Complete a Full Grant Application
If we approve your LOI, we will invite you to complete a full grant application via our online grants portal.
