About the Foundation

Funding Priorities

  1. Projects to improve medical and health professional education in the context of the changing health care system;
  2. Projects that will increase diversity among health care professionals;
  3. Projects that demonstrate or encourage ways to increase teamwork between and among health care professionals; and
  4. Educational strategies to increase care for underserved populations.

While no effort is made to achieve a strict proportion of Foundation activities across the four areas at any one time, an overall balance is attempted. In addition, they provide useful guidance in assessing the relevance and importance of grant proposals as well as in determining and designing conferences sponsored by the Macy Foundation.
