Health

Health is a key factor in overall quality of life and strength of community. Recognizing that health and welfare is affected by a wide range of factors, the foundation supports the full spectrum of health care, mental-wellness and medical-research programs.

Grants are available to programs and facilities providing a variety of care services to individuals and communities. These organizations include:
  • Low-income health clinics
  • Expanding access to primary care
  • Nonprofit hospital facilities
  • Inpatient or outpatient centers
Financial hardship can exacerbate and compound mental health struggles in historically under-resourced  communities. Our foundation will support programs designed to address these challenges, including:
  • Substance abuse and addiction counseling
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Awareness and education initiatives
The Adam R. Scripps Foundation will address medical challenges facing our communities today. As part of our commitment, our support of research programs, includes:
  • Disease research and vaccination development
  • Studying brain function and predisposition toward addiction
  • Support of an academic physician
