For 30 years, the Winter Park Health Foundation has been a leader, innovator, collaborator, and investor in improving the health of Central Florida residents – especially those who reside in the communities of Eatonville, Maitland and Winter Park.

In this video, you’ll travel from 1994 to present day with us and explore a few of the major ways the Foundation has made a difference, across six eras and several evolutions, changing community needs, rising critical issues, and unprecedented challenges.  

Introducing the Well Together Grant Awards Challenge

For all 30 of our years, the Winter Park Health Foundation has led with innovation, investing in the health and wellbeing of the communities of Eatonville, Maitland, and Winter Park through a creative mix of initiatives, facilities, programs, and grants. To date, WPHF has invested more than 131 million dollars in grant funding to projects and organizations that marry impact and innovation, and that create solutions for our ever-changing community health needs.

We are excited to announce the Foundation’s plans for a special grant initiative in commemoration of our 30th anniversary. Sparked by the Victory Cup Initiative (VCI) and designed in collaboration with VCI’s leadership, through our Well Together Grant Awards Challenge we will award $300,000 to five non-profit organizations that serve or are poised to improve health in Eatonville, Maitland, and/or Winter Park. The Well Together Challenge seeks creative and innovative solutions focused on hyper-local issues that are important to our communities and to the Winter Park Health Foundation: youth mental health; diabetes and pre-diabetes; and heart health.

An application process will open on April 15 and close on May 15.
