Reflections from Judy Belk, October 1, 2014
I am pleased to announce that Advancing Wellness is here! We are now accepting letters of interest for the next phase of our grants program, which promotes equity through advocacy and access. On behalf of the Board and staff of Cal Wellness, thank you for your patience. We appreciate your understanding as we took some time to undertake our strategic planning process.
Along with the launch of our latest grantmaking chapter is the debut of our redesigned CalWellness.org website and its new online application system – the Cal Wellness Grants Portal. The website is designed to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the grants program; details about each new portfolio and health issue to be addressed; instructions on how to apply; and useful news, resources and information.
As we launch this program, we are doing our best to be accessible to all of our community partners. To introduce Advancing Wellness, members of our Cal Wellness team will be out at Meet the Grantmaker events throughout the state, and I will be joining our team at two, one-hour webinars on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 10 a.m. and on Thursday, October 9, 2014 at 10 a.m. To sign up for the webinars, click on one or both of the following dates: October 7 & October 9.
We value learning from your feedback. We are committed to customer service and encourage you to share your thoughts on our grantmaking and experiences using our new online tools.
At Cal Wellness, we realize that the pursuit of our mission to improve the health of the people of California is dependent on those of you serving in communities throughout the state. We thank you for your efforts and look forward to working with all our community partners in advancing wellness for all Californians. Stay well.
