Send Us Your Innovative Idea to Improve Rural Health

The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, a private foundation focused on health care and quality of life issues in North Carolina, is now accepting submissions for the 2014 Innovations in Rural Health Award. For the second year in a row, we are looking for original, innovative solutions to drive health improvement in rural communities. Submissions will be accepted until October 31, 2013.  One winner will receive a $25,000 New Rural Award for their creative and inspiring ideas. Up to three finalists will receive $7,500 each.

In addition to the $25,000 prize, the winner might see their project implemented in North Carolina by the Trust and will gain exposure to a number of other North Carolina funders and health care leaders. Read about the 2013 New Rural Award winner and finalists.

Any individual or organization across the U.S. is invited to participate. We encourage you to think big and help us identify exciting approaches that will work to address health challenges in rural areas.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you, Allen Smart
