Our work

Grantmaking 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.

What's new

Too often, where we're born, the color of our skin or living with a disability determines our chance at a healthy life. At Northwest Health Foundation, we are committed to ending that reality. To do so, we are investing where the need is greatest.

Over the last few years, we have consciously increased our grantmaking to communities of color. This infographic summarizes how far we've come.
