Kaiser Permanente gives grants to non-profit groups
Submitted By Jessie Mangaliman
Kaiser Permanente has awarded $462,000 in grants to 30 programs serving local communities in southern Alameda County as part of its annual community benefit grants program.
Among the new organizations and programs that received grants this year include the Bay Area Community Services, a non-profit that runs an adult day care in Fremont, which will develop therapeutic nutritional programs for seniors to help them manage diabetes and cardiovascular diseases; the Bay Area Women's Sports Initiative, a group that will promote physical activity among young girls in Hayward by partnering them with female athlete mentors; LIFT - Levantate!, a group that will train low-income youth in Hayward as peer educators promoting healthy life choices; and Niroga Institute, an Oakland-based non-profit that will teach yoga, breathing techniques and meditation to students in two Fremont schools.
In the fall, an additional $400,000 of community benefit strategic grants will be announced for organizations in southern Alameda County.
