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.

About us ›

Our work

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.
