Black Tie International: Quantum Foundation

Quantum Foundation awards more than $1.75 million to county health projects


WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (May 30, 2013): At last week’s meeting of Quantum Foundation’s Board of Trustees, the board approved over $1.75 million in grants – all of which will directly benefit local communities in Palm Beach County. Grant recipients included Legal Aid Society of the Palm Beaches ($50,000), Mental Health Association of Palm Beach County ($50,000) and the University of Florida ($904,894). The board also approved an additional $750,000 for the Quantum in the Community initiative, which funds grassroots non-profits providing for people’s basic needs like food, housing and transport.

Quantum Foundation is West Palm Beach’s largest health-related grantmaking organization with 100 percent of funding dollars staying in the county. The foundation has assets of approximately $140 million and since its inception in 1997 has awarded nearly $100 million to more than 800 grantees in Palm Beach County.

Under the chairmanship of Mr. William Meyer, the 12-member board unanimously approved the grants which will provide much needed services directly aligned with the foundation’s mission of funding innovative projects that improve the health of all county residents:

·         The Legal Aid Society grant funds the Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP), which primarily assists in resolving health-related legal issues such as denial of benefits or financial hardship resulting from the cost of medical care.

·         The Mental Health Association grant will help increase the capacity for mental health professionals to work directly with primary care physicians, resulting in a stronger “treat the whole person” approach to health.

·         The University of Florida grant funds the Palm Beach STEM Initiative, which seeks to equip county teachers with the tools and skills they need to prepare students to enter science and health-related fields of study or careers.

These health care related grants come on the heels of a $100,000 award to El Sol, Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center, which Quantum’s board approved in March. That grant funds the development of the center’s Promotores de Salud program. Promotores are trained lay members of the community who help families learn about and connect with health care resources. Promotores improve the health literacy of communities through trusted one-on-one, peer-to-peer education.

The board meeting also served as the last official event for outgoing President Kerry Diaz who is stepping down to spend more time with her husband and three school-aged sons. Eric Kelly, who has served as Vice President of Programs for the foundation since 2009, takes over from Ms. Diaz as President on June 1. Ms. Diaz will continue to serve as a valued board member and trustee.

Quantum Foundation welcomes letters of inquiry/grant applications from non-profits working directly within its focus areas. For more information, please visit the organization’s website at




Quantum Foundation is a private perpetual grant-making organization. The foundation grants funds to approved charities and certain government entities serving Palm Beach County, Florida and, according to recent data compiled by the Florida Philanthropic Network (FPN) Quantum Foundation is the largest Palm Beach County-based health funder with 100% of grant dollars staying in the county. The foundation works to enhance health care access, improve health education, and increase the quality and quantity of the health care workforce, so that every resident of the county has the opportunity to live a healthy life, regardless of their income, education or background.
