Our 2021 Grantmaking Report is here!
We are excited to share our 2021 Grantmaking Report, an overview of the growing number of community organizations the foundation is supporting in our second full year of significant grantmaking. 2021 was an incredible year of learning for us. We connected with, heard from, and made grants to hundreds of organizations and gained innumerable insights from thousands of interactions.
Community at the center
Communities most impacted by inequities must be at the center of solutions. In each of Washington’s 39 counties, Black, Indigenous, and other people of color; people with disabilities; members of the LGBTQIA+ community; immigrants and refugees; people living with low incomes; and many who hold several of these identities are leading transformative work. Our funding prioritizes their efforts.
Racial justice is our leading value
Group Health Foundation believes true equity is possible only when communities have decision-making power over the material conditions of their lives. Organizations and initiatives led by those affected by inequity have the best solutions for enacting real change. We are committed to realizing equity in Washington and ensuring that every choice we make as a foundation is aligned with our beliefs.
