Northwest Health Foundation seeks to advance, support, and promote health in Oregon and southwest Washington.
By providing grants to initiatives, forming partnerships with health and community leaders, and advocating for policy change, we are furthering our vision of giving every person the opportunity to lead a healthy life.
Grant making is a core function of the Foundation. Over the years we have refined and strengthened our focus on preventive initiatives—ones that encourage conditions that enable everyone to live healthy and prosperous lives.
In addition to our grant programs, we also make a difference through community building and advocacy.
The 2015 Kaiser Permanente Community Fund grant cycle is now open!
The Kaiser Permanente Community Fund at Northwest Health Foundation is a twelve-year, sunset fund with a mission to improve the health of communities throughout the Kaiser Permanente Northwest service region, with a specific focus on addressing the “upstream” factors that create or inhibit community health, also known as the social determinants of health.
