About GIH

Grantmakers In Health (GIH) is a nonprofit, educational organization dedicated to helping foundations and corporate giving programs improve the health of all people. Its mission is to foster communication and collaboration among grantmakers and others, and to help strengthen the grantmaking community's knowledge, skills, and effectiveness. Our Funding Partners represent over 200 health foundations and corporate giving programs across the country, operating at local, state, and national levels.


GIH offers paid vacation, personal, and sick leave at the beginning of each year to encourage work life balance and offers a generous benefits package. We provide all full-time employees with medical, dental, and vision insurance along with voluntary life, short-term, and long-term disability insurance. All employees have the option to participate in our Health Care and Dependent Care flexible spending accounts, SmartBenefits program, and to purchase supplemental insurance such as accident or hospital insurance through Aflac. Upon hire, individuals are eligible to participate in our retirement plan that includes a matching contribution and, after one year of employment, a generous discretionary contribution.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our programming, personnel and employment practices, and governance. We view diversity as a fundamental element of social justice and democracy, and integral to our mission. Diverse voices and viewpoints deepen our understanding of differences in health outcomes and health care delivery, inform core strategies, and strengthen our ability to fashion just solutions. We use the term diversity broadly to encompass differences in the attributes and experiences of both individuals (such as age, color, disability, faith, gender, gender identity and expression, geography, immigration status, income, language, marital status, medical condition, national origin, physical ability, political ideology, race, or sexual orientation) and organizations (foundations and giving programs of differing sizes, missions, origins, geographic locations, and approaches to grantmaking).
