Colin Pekruhn, Program Director, Grantmakers In Health

Grantmakers In Health (GIH) is pleased to announce the release of results from our latest scan of the field, Palliative and Serious Illness Care Grantmaking 2019. Creating a system of care that improves outcomes for persons with serious illnesses is an important and growing field of work that many health funders are directly and indirectly supporting. To better understand which philanthropic organizations are supporting work related to serious illness and palliative care, GIH surveyed its Funding Partner organizations in the fall of 2019.

This survey provides valuable insights into the broader field of palliative care and serious illness philanthropy, including how and where funders are directing their resources, the strategies they employ, and the interventions they are interested in. The survey results have been compiled into a summary infographic.
