St. Anthony Foundation Receives $250,000 Grant from Gilead Foundation
Grant will support the foundation’s “Creating Community Gateways to Stability” project
St. Anthony Foundation was awarded a generous grant from the Gilead Foundation. The Gilead Foundation, a nonprofit organization endowed by Gilead Sciences, approved the $250,000 grant in 2022 to fund the “Creating Community Gateways to Stability” project.
The grant allows St. Anthony’s to continue its mission – to feed, heal, shelter, clothe, lift the spirits of those in need, and create a society in which all persons flourish. St. Anthony’s is committed to providing pathways to hope, stability and renewal for people in need in our community.
“Gilead’s generosity will directly impact people in our community. With their support, we can serve hundreds, even thousands of people who are experiencing homelessness and poverty every day.”Nils Behnke, CEO of St. Anthony’ys
The Gilead Foundation strives for health prosperity for all. The Foundation creates spheres of impact by encouraging a culture of giving within the company, engaging with local communities and exploring innovative approaches to complex social issues.
