Health. Equity.
Our shared future.

We’re on a mission


At Group Health Foundation, we have an audacious goal: health equity in Washington State. We believe opportunities for health should be available to everyone, and are dedicated to partnering with communities across the state to advance a shared vision for a vibrant, healthy future.

Our mission is rooted in Group Health Cooperative’s legacy of social impact. Founded in 1946 as a radical alternative to traditional medical care, Group Health Cooperative’s vision was bold: create a health system grounded in the principles of social justice and provide affordable, preventive, person-centered health care. Through engaging the voices of its members and exploring innovative approaches, Group Health Cooperative created a better way to promote the health and well-being of the individuals and families it served. That spirit is the cornerstone of Group Health Foundation.
