Hearts Grants proposals are to be submitted directly to San Francisco General Hospital Foundation (the Foundation) through the submission link on the Foundation’s grants portal and not through the UCSF Contract and Grants Office or other hospital departments. Applicants are required to attain approval of their proposed project with a ZSFG Executive and UCSF Service Chief by June 8, 2021.
The Hearts Grant program will be centered around supporting the staff and patients at ZSFG. These grants can range between $5,000 – $50,000, but other requests may also be considered in addition to both one- and two-year grant requests. Multi-year funding is distributed annually and is contingent upon completion of an interim report.
Requests for capital equipment (except ambulatory care equipment that are END OF LIFE in Building 5 only), EHR, LCR, or IT system change requests, basic institutional operational or overhead materials and supplies costs, personnel/salaries, or basic scientific and/or clinical research will NOT be considered for funding.
Completed applications that comply with the Hearts Grants guidelines will be submitted for review by the Hearts Grants Committee. Failure to adhere to these guidelines could result in a declined application. Please note that select applicants may be requested to briefly present their proposed project to the Committee and will be briefed prior to the meeting.
