Florida Blue Foundation

Our company and foundation have embraced the belief that all health care is local, and your zip code is the best determinant of your future health. Improving the social determinants of health is the most pressing health issue in our communities. Our three Drivers of Health – food security, mental well-being, and health equity – are the issues on which we believe that our work can make the greatest impact. By working in collaboration with philanthropy, community, business, and government, we can all aim toward the common goal of greater health for all.

Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

We deeply believe in the practice of authentic listening and engagement, and we are establishing a more focused emphasis on the social determinants of health – namely, structural racism and community safety – that affect so many neighborhoods in Cleveland. In 2021, we named a new program officer to develop a health equity focus area, intended to connect and uplift resident voices to share community influence and power. Our goal is to help residents challenge the policies and practices that continue to devastate the health and well-being of too many individuals in our communities. It is time for us to invest in building trust.

Movember Foundation

In 2003, two mates from Melbourne, Australia (Travis Garone and Luke Slattery) were having a quiet beer at the Gypsy Bar in Fitzroy when their conversation turned to recurring fashion trends. The mustache, a fixture in past decades, was nowhere to be seen in recent trends. They joked about bringing it back.

Foundation for a Healthy High Point

Local health philanthropy has evolved over the years, moving away from funding direct services to becoming strategic change agents, offering community leadership, and promoting collaboration. Place-based health legacy foundations can leverage impact beyond our grantmaking, using our resources to help set agendas and fuel system improvements. By convening and partnering with regional nonprofits and the public and private sectors, we can achieve sustainable solutions to entrenched health challenges.

Palm Health Foundation

Six years ago, the foundation launched our Healthier Together initiative, committing $1 million to six communities with the greatest health disparities in Palm Beach County. Healthier Together represented a radical shift in our grantmaking – we put residents at the core of developing health solutions around their own needs, rather than force-fitting a system that doesn’t always recognize the complexity, culture, context and circumstances of diverse communities.

Grantmaker Focus: The Cameron Foundation

The Cameron Foundation

In addition to exposing the ongoing racial and ethnic health care disparities in our country, the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how crucial palliative care is in supporting patients and families as they navigate serious illness. It has unfortunately also drawn attention to how (relatively) few clinicians are trained in providing palliative care.

Health Foundation of South Florida

Our agenda is bold and ambitious. It calls for us to address the entrenched systems that too often—as was so painfully exposed in 2020— act as barriers to health. Our strategy calls for us to reach out and bring together our fellow leaders and neighbors from across South Florida because we know that’s the only way to truly make a difference. Above all, because we’re not looking to bring solutions to communities. We’re looking for communities to bring solutions to life
