We know that health begins in our schools, neighborhoods, and workplaces — long before we ever see a doctor. That’s why Kaiser Permanente Community Fund (KPCF) invested in the skills and talents people offer to their communities, amplifying their efforts to create a vibrant, healthy and fulfilling future for everyone.

About KPCF

The Kaiser Permanente Community Fund at Northwest Health Foundation was founded in 2004 with a $28 million initial investment by Kaiser Permanente and a commitment to supporting inclusive and collaborative efforts to improve health. KPCF awarded its first grants in 2005 and continued to make annual grants to nonprofit organizations in Oregon and Southwest Washington through 2016.
