Donor Name: The Greenwall Foundation
State: All States

Type of Grant: Grant
Size of the Grant: Not Available
Grant Duration: Grant Duration Not Mentioned
The Making a Difference program supports research to help resolve an important emerging or unanswered bioethics problem in clinical, biomedical, or public health decision-making, policy, or practice.
The Foundation’s vision is to make bioethics integral to decisions in health care, policy, and research. Their mission is to expand bioethics knowledge to improve clinical, biomedical, and public health decision-making, policy, and practice. Projects funded under the Making a Difference program should promote the Foundation’s vision and mission through innovative bioethics research that will have a real-world, practical impact.
While they welcome all innovative proposals that will have a real-world impact, they are particularly interested in proposals that address the ethical and policy issues raised by the following priority topics:
- Bias and discrimination in health care, which may be based on a broad range of characteristics, and which may involve institutional and systemic contributors to bias and racism as well as health disparities or social determinants of health;
- Trust in science, medicine, and public health;
- Public health crises (related to, for example, emerging infectious diseases, climate change, and the opioid epidemic), including their impact on mental health;
- Healthcare access, costs, and resource allocation.
The Greenwall Foundation only makes awards to affiliated individuals at institutions with tax-exempt status with the United States Internal Revenue Service. In addition, an individual cannot simultaneously receive Making a Difference and Faculty Scholars Program funding from The Greenwall Foundation.
Projects not funded under this program
Projects with the following characteristics will not be funded under this program:
- Projects for which bioethics is not the main focus.
- Projects that simply describe or analyze bioethics issues or provide a conceptual framework, without making practical recommendations for resolving the issues.
- Projects that implement or make incremental improvements in established approaches to bioethics problems, build institutional infrastructure, or provide bioethics education, training, or coursework.
- Projects that have predetermined conclusions or advocate for predetermined positions.
- Projects whose main goal is to convene or enhance a meeting, unless there is a well-developed plan to produce a major peer-reviewed publication with consensus recommendations, guidelines, or best practices that have a strong likelihood of real-world implementation. The applicant must have a strong record in convening similar successful impactful meetings.
- Projects to support or extend ongoing or core activities of an organization.
- Projects with a principal investigator who does not have a PhD, JD, MD, or an equivalent doctoral-level degree.
