- bi3 awards planning and large, multi-year grants to 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations. As Bethesda Inc. is co-sponsor of TriHealth and a support organization of Bethesda Hospital, bi3 values and encourages a collaborative partnership when appropriate with TriHealth.
- bi3 will fund the infrastructure of a project, but not the infrastructure of an organization. Reasonable project administrative costs may be included as a percentage of the project budget.
- bi3 will not fund health care levies, lobbying or political campaigns, annual operating support, emergency requests, scholarships, endowments, or grants to individuals. In addition, projects where bi3 grant funds account for more than 40% of the total operating budget of the lead organization will not be considered.
