The Foundation for the Public's Health
A VEHICLE FOR PUBLIC HEALTH PHILANTHROPY
To address critical gaps in government funding, NACCHO launched The Foundation for the Public's Health in 2015. As a separate charitable organization, The Foundation works to support local health departments that deliver public health services to more than two-thirds of the nation's residents.
The Foundation is encouraging the growth of philanthropic giving to support the nation's public health system. Promising partnership models involving government, corporations, local health departments, community organizations, and donors can help meet the nation's complex health needs.
The Foundation follows a needs-based approach to identifying investment opportunities that connect the health challenges of communities with donors' aspirations. By forging coalitions between the public and private sectors, it strives to develop sustainable local and regional funding options. The Foundation aims to mobilize private dollars to shrink funding gaps, address public health emergencies, and provide resources for innovative and cost-effective programs.
