Berwick Offering Healthy Workplace Grants

October 6, 2021

Community Giving Foundation: Berwick recognizes that our nonprofit partners throughout the Berwick service area have been resilient when faced with adversities over the past two years. The Healthy Workplace Grant program was designed in 2020 to encourage happier, healthier teams within nonprofit organizations. The Foundation has enjoyed receiving your feedback and hearing some of your great healthy workplace ideas and is excited to offer this grant program again this year. Grants can be used to purchase supplies/equipment, programming, professional development, and more to boost the mental and physical health of your team. The goal of the application process is to encourage creative methods for increasing health and positivity in your office.
