Awarded Grant Funds: 2016-2020.

Each year, the WBT© Foundation identifies important problems, as they relate to patient care. We then try to fund real-world tests of possible solutions and disseminates what’s been learned nationally to inform hospitals, patient- & urgent-care facilities, and medical professionals who can effect beneficial change when it comes times to tackle patient care. Through fruitful collaboration, we and grantees — together have developed new knowledge and insights to help solve important patient care problems in our areas of interest and expertise. Through solid education research, we've identified important knowledge gaps in our areas of interest, we develop and tests promising ideas to narrow those gaps and then broadly shares what we learn to each entity.

Through our efforts, we have worked with some of the best businesses throughout our communities who has helped us recognize not only the issues facing patient care in our communities, but researching on how to improve and educate patient care. We share their exemplar service by awarding them grants. Here are our grantees awarded by us:



Camp Attaway — Awarded Amount: $30,000

Camp Attaway was founded in 1998 with a mission to nurture the mind, the body and the spirit of children who are at-risk because of an inability to manage their emotions and behaviors. Camp Attaway operates a therapeutic summer program that provides children with individually tailored programs that promote learning and new ways of expressing themselves.

The aim is to achieve growth and a better understanding of self and others at home, in school, and in the community while having fun.
