AN ENHANCED AND EVOLVING SULLIVAN 180 Grants, Volunteer Opportunities, Events and Workshops


Grants, Volunteer Opportunities, Events and Workshops

A recent statistic from the Trust for America’s Health, a Washington DC based non-profit, stated, “The United States spends an estimated $3.6 trillion annually on health, less than 3 percent of that spending is directed toward public health and prevention.” 


“Sullivan 180 was struck by this staggering statistic; and with that we have turned our attention, focus and investments to prevention. “What better way than focusing on our youth in their schools and in their communities,” said Sandra Gerry, Founding Chair.


With this in mind, Sullivan 180 has refined our focus and set our intentions on prevention and empowering a healthier generation.


Sullivan 180 grants and programs will continue to support efforts in Sullivan County to build a healthy community, one degree at at time. Grant applications are now available for healthy community initiatives, community development, beautification in communities and at schools. Volunteer opportunities, workshops, scholarships and internships will be announced soon.


Sullivan 180 will continue to work with our partners and a grassroots network of volunteers to address immediate health concerns, and to offer these grants and resources to promote innovative ways for all residents to live a healthier lifestyle. This encompasses not only physical, but also mental, spiritual, economic, and environmental health. Whether it’s increasing access to nutritious food, creating opportunities for physical activity; finding a sense of purpose or building a sense of belonging— these all contribute to a healthy life and a healthy community.
