The special report was developed in response to the need for more information on developing sources of funds to support wellness programs. Funding is the special fuel, the key ingredient in starting or expanding a wellness program,

Especially in these difficult financial times, plans can be shelved because of budget issues. Funding, wellness managers tell us, is something they struggle with.

Wellness and health promotion programs offered by hospitals, colleges and universities, community-based initiatives and other non-profit organizations have an option for securing the funds they need: grants and contracts from charitable foundations, company-sponsored foundations and certain government agencies.

That’s why Grant Funding for Wellness and Health Promotion Programs has been developed by the Wellness Management Information Center editorial team.
