Our vision is for the people of Palm Beach County to experience a better life through quality health. Our mission is to inspire and fund initiatives that improve the health of our communities. In order to achieve our mission and vision, we seek to fund projects that create impact in three areas.
As a health foundation, we recognize there are a multitude of factors that influence an individual’s health. The social determinants of health include the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. We now know how critical those factors are in determining the health of a community, and our aim is to support efforts that address these various areas.
Individuals have the knowledge and skills needed to make healthy choices; and health workers have the ability to effectively serve those individuals.
Communities have access to resources that support their optimal health; and organizations have the capacity to provide those health resources.
Stakeholders are engaged to reshape systems that promote equitable community health; and multiple efforts are aligned to implement solutions.
If your organization has a program, project, or idea that furthers our mission and vision, and aligns with one or more of our impact zones, we would love to learn more!
