David and Anita Keller Foundation: Grants for Global Health

OVERVIEW: The David and Anita Keller Foundation makes grants to organizations supporting access to basic physical and mental healthcare and increased government and corporate accountability for human rights violations.

IP TAKE: Keller tends to support its grantees for multiple years rather than award one-time grants. Grant seekers should expect a good deal of competition from like-minded organizations in this funding field.

PROFILE: Based in the San Francisco Bay area and founded in 2002, the David and Anita Keller Foundation supports “[o]rganizations and social entrepreneurs who work to expand and protect human rights.” The foundation’s primary grantmaking programs include Health Justice and Accountability, Advocacy & Investigation.

Keller’s Health Justice program awards grants to organizations advocating for access to physical and mental healthcare, with an emphasis on those working in remote and rural locations. The foundation also supports groups that are expanding healthcare systems in those hard-to-reach locations. Grants typically range from $10,000 to $30,000. In the past, the foundation has awarded grants to Last Mile Health to support its continuing work in developing and managing local community health workers, as well as Gardens for Health, for its work combatting malnutrition through innovative approaches in agriculture. Click here to learn more about just a few of the organizations Keller supports.

The David and Anita Keller Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
