Dear Friends of the Foundation,
As you have likely heard, Group Health has signed an agreement to be acquired by Kaiser Permanente, subject to a membership vote and regulatory approval. As a valued donor, we wanted to reach out to you and assure you that your support is as important and as valued now as it has always been. Now, your support will offer our region a more exciting and healthy future.
Group Health has a rich history in this region, and with this change that legacy will become even greater. The Kaiser acquisition will create a new Group Health Community Foundation, which will become the parent organization for our Group Health Foundation. The parent company will build community partnerships and address the health-related social welfare needs of Washington’s families and communities.
Your contributions to the existing Group Health Foundation will continue to touch peoples’ lives in the ways that donors like you make possible—from caring for hospice patients and their families to developing innovative solutions to health care, to protecting children and teens through immunizations.
This is an exciting opportunity to create an even stronger, more vibrant future in our state – and beyond. Please join us on this journey, with your support, your energy, your ideas, and your commitment to the mission, purpose, and legacy of Group Health. You can learn more, ask questions, and offer your thoughts at http://ghcnews.org/.
Thank you for your support. We’re honored that you have supported us in the past and we look forward to your continued partnership as we take these bold steps to build an even better and healthier future for the Group Health Foundation.
