Partnering to Improve the Public's Health

The Foundation for the Public’s Health builds transformational and sometimes unconventional partnerships to advance the nation’s well-being.

By connecting individuals and organizations across philanthropy, government, business, the nonprofit sector, and academia, we strengthen our collective impact to build healthier communities.

  • Philanthropic Donors: Donors help The Foundation and our local partners develop a greater capacity to deliver services. We offer meaningful investment possibilities that align philanthropic interests with local needs.
  • Government: Complex public health challenges require multidimensional partnerships. Coordinating with education, law enforcement, transportation, housing, and other government agencies improves the quality of outcomes.
  • Businesses: Corporations have a stake in the well-being of the communities in which they work. Through public-private partnerships, businesses support programs that build an able-bodied workforce and a stronger economy.
  • Community-based organizations: After-school programs, domestic violence shelters, faith-based centers, homeless sanctuaries, and other community groups can expand the reach and effectiveness of local health departments.
  • Academia: Universities and other research centers offer insights into seemingly intractable public health problems. They also create frameworks to monitor program effectiveness, informing and strengthening future evidence-based practices.
