50 Under 50

your idea + small grant = big difference @ CMHC

In honor of CMHC’s 50th anniversary, an anonymous gift was made to the CMHC Foundation to fund a series of small grants to improve the quality of care in outpatient services at CMHC.  In 2017, another anonymous donation was made in order to continue 50 Under 50 going, continuing into 2018! We are grateful to be able to continue to fund small grants and welcome all ideas.

This 50 under 50 special funding campaign will last throughout 2018, awarding small grants of $50 or less to at least 50 applicants seeking funding for materials, training, or other resources that promise to make a difference in the quality of care in outpatient services at CMHC.
