The Saint Luke's Foundation - the philanthropic arm that was developed by Cleveland, Ohio-based Saint Luke's Medical Center - recently announced second-quarter grants totaling more than $2.7 million. To reach its aims of supporting programs that could be recognized for their success and duplicated, Saint Luke's awarded grants to 11 organizations working to advance urban health and well-being, urban families and community revitalization.
"2012 is truly proving to be a transformative year for the foundation," said Denise San Antonio Zeman, president and CEO of the foundation. "We continue to pursue our strategy of going deeper with community partners that demonstrate their capacity to achieve positive outcomes in our program strategy areas."
Cuyahoga County Foreclosure, the Ohio State University Extension and The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland were awarded grants for their work to benefit urban families, altogether totaling $350,000. Urban community revitalization projects received the lion's share of funding, with $1.5 million for Neighborhood Progress, Inc., which is working on a project titled "Saint Luke's Manor Phase III: Turning a Vision Into Reality."
