Medtronic believes that all people deserve access to quality healthcare and well-being, and through the Medtronic Foundation, we seek opportunities to demonstrate sustainable and innovative solutions to expand access and improve health outcomes for underserved populations around the world.

Medtronic Foundation is seeking project ideas to test or scale solutions that improve the efficiency of healthcare delivery by addressing gaps in distance, time or people, while leading to demonstrable health outcomes for underserved populations. Successful applicants will receive a one time, one-year grant for US$50,000-US$100,000 and will participate in a global learning collaborative facilitated by the Medtronic Foundation. Up to ten (10) grants will be awarded. 

Organizations will find information on eligibility, timing and how to apply by visiting the Medtronic Foundation Opportunity Grant Initiative page on the CAF America website.

Medtronic Foundation Opportunity Grant Initiative Webinar

The Medtronic Foundation is hosting two webinars to share more about the Opportunity Grant program with potential applicants. Each webinar will contain the same content and interested applicants need only to sign up for one webinar.

Webinars will be hosted on:

  • May 22, 2018 at 10am ET (GMT-4)
  • May 30, 2018 at 12pm ET (GMT-4)

During the webinar, we will discuss more about the application process, eligibility requirements, and timeline for the Opportunity Grant program, and will answer frequently asked questions about the program. Out of fairness to all applicants, we will not provide feedback on the merit of specific proposal ideas.

Register for the webinar(s) using this link. If you cannot make the webinar, recordings will be posted on the Medtronic Foundation Opportunity Grant Initiative page on the CAF America website.
