Health Foundation of Greater Massillon

Since its inception, Health Foundation of Greater Massillon (HFGM) has awarded more than $3 million in charitable grants to local organizations to improve the health and wellness of individuals and families in our community. HFGM incentivizes area youth to become involved in building a healthier community through its Community Giving High School Volunteer Program. Students from area high schools who participate in the annual program receive a grant from HFGM to develop and execute a community activism project that addresses a health-related issue in our community.


Grants are made to entities recognized as tax-exempt charities under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and governmental entities. HFGM does not normally approve grants to support the following:

  • Overhead and/or administrative costs not directly associated with the proposed project or program
  • Annual appeals or membership drives
  • Fundraising projects
  • Religious organizations for religious purposes
  • Travel for individuals or groups (if that is the primary focus)
  • Endowment funds
  • Individuals or groups
  • Lobbying activities
