The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust seeks applicants who have original, innovative solutions to improve health in rural communities.

Applicant submissions will be judged on the following five criteria:

  1. Address difficult or long-standing issues of prevention and treatment
  2. Demonstrate transferability. Ideas need to be relevant to rural and economically distressed regions of North Carolina
  3. Be consistent with high-impact work in other rural places
  4. Show potential for impact within three to five years
  5. Show signs of success

Applications will be accepted from any individual or organization, but must be able to be implemented in distressed regions of North Carolina.


Any individual or any organization across the U.S. is invited to participate. Applicants are encouraged to think big.
