A new and extraordinary foundation serving Washington state

We’re on a mission


Group Health Community Foundation is a new philanthropic organization in Washington state, created to carry on Group Health’s legacy of social impact.

Group Health Cooperative was founded in 1946 as a radical alternative to traditional medical care. Its vision was bold: create a health system grounded in the principles of social justice and provide affordable, preventive, person-centered health care. Through collaboration, innovation, and engaging the voices of its members, Group Health sought to create a better way to promote the health and well-being of the individuals and families it served. That spirit is now the cornerstone of Group Health Community Foundation.

Working with people across Washington state, we aspire to tackle health inequities and advance the community’s vision for a vibrant, healthy future.
