2021 Grantmaking Report

2021 Grantmaking Report


Imaginative, bold, and accountable leaders all throughout the state are working toward systemic change every day. On tribal lands, in rural areas, in big cities, and in smaller towns, community organizations and leaders take care of their people, disrupt narratives about whose voices matter, and challenge the status quo.

We are incredibly proud and humbled to be supporting them. This 2021 Grantmaking Report is an overview of the growing number of community organizations Group Health Foundation is supporting in our second full year of significant grantmaking. It was an incredible year of learning for us, which is stretching and shaping our longer-term grantmaking strategies.
