Every day we work to support and build inclusive, powerful, and healthy communities characterized by racial equity and economically just systems.
To achieve health equity and secure a fair and just region through leadership, advocacy, and resources.
Our commitment is to view every decision we make through the lens of racial equity and economic inclusion in service of health equity.
While we recognize the challenges faced, we remain hyper-focused on creating a measurable and positive impact in the communities our partners serve through driving systemic change that leads to healthy, thriving communities for all.
Our mission is to uproot systemic racism and economic exclusion that is preventing people from living long and healthy lives. To do this, we focus on funding nonprofits and promoting policies that build both health and wealth in historically excluded communities.
That means we partner with and support organizations that work to improve health on all fronts, to quality health care service and affordable housing solutions to encourage in the areas of democratic participation.
We honor and trust the expertise of our community partners and staff to do their best work. We take actions that align with our words by cultivating authentic relationships grounded in honesty, listening, and power sharing.
We seek diverse perspectives and experiences to boldly advance equity and inclusion in our collective work to build antiracist systems and practices. We act with mindfulness, intention, and courage to dismantle the unconscious and automatic ways racism presents itself in philanthropic work.
We’re better together. We join a broad range of partners in supporting and designing creative community solutions.
We grow and evolve every day through curiosity, risk-taking, and innovation. We learn from stakeholders across all sectors, center voices closest to the problems and solutions, seed transformative ideas, and change actions purposefully.
We are transparent, equitable, and responsible in the distribution of resources through diligent, ethical, community-informed investment.
Meet the team that makes our work possible.
