Novo Nordisk, Inc.

We are excited about the new direction NNI is taking with our charitable giving strategy, focusing on reducing the burden of chronic disease for vulnerable populations. By committing funding to projects specifically geared toward prevention by way of community-based health education and nutrition equity/food access, we are focused on supporting capacity building of local, on-the-ground organizations to design solutions tailored for the needs of the communities they serve. This in turn is designed to ultimately lead to better health outcomes.

Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts

The opioid crisis is a wide-ranging public health crisis that will require many different approaches and disciplines to effect real change. It will require bringing together and highlighting the intersections of physical and mental health, social determinants of health, and long-standing policies including those on criminal justice and access to treatment. To that end, many health funders can find a role to play that contributes to reducing mortality and increasing well-being, even if they do not consider themselves opioid use disorder funders.

Merck Foundation

No one strategy is sufficient to reach people from underserved communities who are living with diseases like cancer, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS with the high-quality health care they deserve. That’s why the Merck Foundation has focused on making longer-term and more flexible philanthropic investments that support an array of promising and comprehensive approaches. Further, collaboration is critical to tackle complex health disparities and build healthier communities. Through our initiatives, we bring together health care providers, community leaders, and academics from across the United States and around the world to test and expand innovative solutions to improve the delivery of health care in their communities.

The foundation has also permanently shifted to remote operations and had a leadership change in summer 2021.

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.
