In 2022, Baptist Health Foundation, in partnership with Baptist Health System, launched their Community Support Fund to provide charitable grants to established 501(c)3 non-profits who are providing healthcare or health related services, and operate within Jefferson, Shelby, Talladega, and Walker counties.

In November of 2023, the Community Support Fund awarded over $350,000 to 38 organizations. One recipient, Birmingham Metro Baptist Association’s ReMedy program, collects and refurbishes durable medical equipment like wheelchairs and walkers to loan to individuals in need of them. Another grantee was the United Ability JETS program, which provides work-based learning opportunities to students with disabilities.

In 2024, Baptist Health Foundation wants to support more non-profits by addressing access to healthcare, food insecurity, behavioral health, and supporting individuals who find themselves in crisis.
