Application Questions

As part of an initiative to invest in the local Watertown-area community, athenahealth plans to distribute two grants for the amounts of $5,000, and one each for $10,000 and $20,000, in 2014. Please include the amount you are requesting and explain in detail how your organization would use a grant.

athenahealth seeks to create meaningful partnerships with local organizations. How would you quantify the impact of this grant on your organization (potentially including as a percentage of its overall annual budget)?

athenistas focus on teaching, learning, and teamwork. How does your organization demonstrate these values?

Optional: Are there other ways athenahealth can support your organization (i.e., volunteer opportunities)?

A committee of athenahealth employees will decide which applicants will receive the final grants and the amounts of those grants; athenahealth may adjust the amount of and distribution timeline for any grant in its sole discretion. Candidates may be asked to meet and discuss their applications with the grant committee. Successful applicants agree that athenahealth may use those applicants’ names and logos in press releases and promotional materials relating to the athenaGives program, and grant recipients will provide such accountings of their use of grant proceeds as athenahealth may reasonably request.
