Our Approach

Our Approach

We work to address the social, economic and structural conditions that contribute to poor health outcomes. We operate with a sense of urgency and a deep commitment to long-term change, emboldened by the resilience, creativity and capacity of our communities.

We nurture relationships and invest in solutions to eliminate health disparities in our region.

We work collaboratively as investors, conveners, learners, and network builders with our communities. We look for partners and allies who share our values and are committed to analysis, community engagement, action, impact and accountability.

We celebrate the diversity of our region and affirm the critical need for inclusion in decision-making and shared action that leads to improved health outcomes.

We invest primarily in Chesterfield County, Goochland County, Hanover County, Henrico County, Powhatan County, and Richmond City, and are open to considering regional and statewide investments that align with and advance our mission.
