Astra Zeneca Funding for Cardiovascular Health
Connections for Cardiovascular HealthSM
Recently, the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation launched the Connections for Cardiovascular Health program with the mission of improving cardiovascular health within the United States and its territories.
This program awards Foundation grants of $150,000 and more annually to US-based, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations or similar nonprofit organizations engaged in charitable work at the community level in the United States in support of the program’s mission.
To qualify for a Foundation grant, nonprofit organizations based in the United States must be engaged in charitable work (at the community level or otherwise) that addresses the Foundation’s Connections for Cardiovascular Health mission and meets key criteria, such as:
Addressing cardiovascular health issues within the Unites States and its territories
Recognizing and working to address an unmet need related to cardiovascular health in the community
Responding to the urgency around addressing cardiovascular health issues including cardiovascular disease or conditions contributing to cardiovascular disease
Improving patients’ lives in connection with the services provided
Foundation grants will be provided to innovative initiatives that are focused on clearly defined and measurable results and processess. The recipient organization must be able to demonstrate sustainability of the initiative after the Foundation grant funds are expended and must be able to demonstrate ongoing activity in helping to improve cardiovascular health.
