CARESTAR is committed to partnering with grantees to enable strong and meaningful work that transforms and enhances the field of emergency and prehospital care. To that end, we award unrestricted, multi-year grants as much as possible. 

Most of our grants are in support local community organizations and/or collaboratives focused on individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color and whose voices would add much-needed perspective and diversity to the decisions that shape healthcare access and experiences.

Generally speaking, we offer the following types of grants: 


  • General Operating Grants – to support organizations that are in alignment with our mission, vision and priorities.  

  • Project/Program Grants – to support specific work, or programs, that are in alignment with our mission, vision and priorities.  

  • Specific Awards and Initiatives – these grants have specific focus areas and application processes. They are announced periodically throughout the year on our website and via social media.

Eligibility Quiz

Once registered, complete the eligibility quiz to see if your organization or project is a good fit for CARESTAR Foundation grant support.


This will only take you a few minutes, and if this initial screening shows a potential fit, you will receive a link to complete a Letter of Interest (LOI).  


Letter of Interest 

The LOI allows us to learn about your organization and project.


We will review and respond to your LOI within approximately two weeks of submission. At that point, you will either be invited to submit a full application, or notified that you are not a good fit at this time.


Full Application

If you are invited to complete a full application, you will receive an email with the application link and due date for submission.  

  • All applications must be submitted online using the link provided.

  • After reviewing your application, we will contact you to discuss the request and share next steps including due dates and final approval process.
