Cigna’s World of Difference Grants program  is offering nonprofit organizations grant opportunities to collaborate on projects that will help people everywhere overcome barriers to their health and well-being related to factors, such as ethnicity, race, gender, age, education, economic status or place of residence.

The Foundation will consider requests for funding in these areas: (1) Children’s Wellness. Building a foundation for a lifetime of healthy choices right from the very start. (2) Women’s Health. Addressing the unique health and wellness issues women face at every age and stage of their lives. (3) Senior Care. Helping seniors enjoy a vital life and enrich the lives of those around them. (4) Health Equity. Removing barriers to help all people pursue optimal health and personal achievement.

Pilot grants in the target range of $50,000-$125,000 will cover the initial year of this collaboration. After that pilot period, projects that meet grant-specific objectives may be offered additional funding at appropriate levels.  An open deadline.  Learn more.
