List of Grant Partners

Through strategic grants, the Health Foundation has made a real difference in the lives of people on the plateau. In four short years, we have awarded over 90 grants to more than 70 organizations; and we are just getting started. The needs in our community are extensive, but thanks to the Health Foundation’s support, more people have access to the healthcare they need, more people are living healthier lives, and health disparities are being reduced.

The Health Foundation is grateful to its donors for their support. We could not do our work without your generosity. Thank you for being so supportive in continuing to improve the health and well-being of our communities.
