The PacificSource Foundation for Health Improvement – Serving the Needs of Our Communities

Foundation 1Our Mission: Community health improvement guided by the touchstones of better health, better care, and lower healthcare costs.

COVID-19 Update: 

The PacificSource Foundation for Health Improvement has shifted the focus of our grants to better support organizations and communities impacted by COVID-19. 

We have closed our traditional grant process for 2020 and have shifted our granting to COVID-19 Relief for the remainder of the year. We will conduct direct outreach and invite applications from those organizations and communities most negatively affected by this pandemic. 

Our COVID-19 Priority Areas

  • Supporting access to direct healthcare services for vulnerable populations. This could include support for clinical or operational staff, equipment, and supplies that enable expanded or enhanced access.
  • Supporting organizations serving vulnerable populations, disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. This could include, but is not limited to, assistance with social support needs among high-risk populations, such as those who are unhoused or housing insecure, food insecure, or at risk of exposure to violence or family instability.

Apply* to the “Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund” through our grant portal.

*Please Note: Initially, these applications will be accessible by invitation only. Updates will be posted here periodically.
