General Support for Advocacy (GSA)
The mission of the Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) is to empower the people of the communities it serves to achieve equal access to quality health services that promote prevention and encourage healthy behaviors. MFH focuses its funding on services that address the health needs of its target population—the uninsured, underinsured, and underserved. MFH’s Health Policy area works to improve the health of its target population by supporting positive health system change. In addressing health care gaps, MFH recognizes the significant impact public policy work has on the health status of Missourians. Strengthening our state’s nonprofit advocacy agencies provides MFH the opportunity to promote positive health policy and advance the health of all Missourians.
MFH provides General Support for Advocacy (GSA) grants as described in I.R.S. Regulation 26CFR § 53.4945-2(a)(6)(i) to tax-exempt nonprofits involved in health-related public policy advocacy work on behalf of Missouri residents. These unrestricted funds are intended to provide financial flexibility for 501(c)(3) organizations to address emerging health policy issues in a timely way, and are not earmarked for a specific project or activity.
