We strive to improve our communities' health so that all people – including the low-income and underserved – live in healthy, vibrant places with access to quality care. During open grant cycles, a review committee meets to consider health improvement applications from eligible organizations that align with our health focus areas.
Most contributions will support projects that produce health improvement outcomes in underserved communities, rather than event sponsorships.
