The dual pandemics of COVID-19 and structural racism have illuminated how inequities across the social determinants of health intersect and disproportionately harm communities. But, this is a transformative time. Collectively, we are in a position to boldly reimagine health--beyond the absence of illness--and invest in immediate and long-term health efforts that can deliver structural solutions to strengthen our region.
We are happy to share that we plan to award a total of $8.8M this year (a significant increase in total giving from 2019) across our three main giving areas -- general operating support, strategic initiatives, and capacity building.
