Welcome to the United Health Foundation
Our Mission: Helping Build Healthier Communities
Through our unique partnerships and the strength of our people, we combine knowledge, experience and passion to improve the health of the communities where we work and live. We are dedicated to investing in a future health workforce that meets the needs of tomorrow and supporting initiatives that improve health quality and outcomes.
When 225,000 people are dedicated to making a difference, anything is possible.
Compassion for others is a distinctive characteristic our people demonstrate every day. Our people help communities and individuals by volunteering their time and making financial contributions throughout the year.
The power of partnership and collaboration is key to improving the health of our communities.
Our philanthropic partnerships with organizations committed to innovation in health care delivery to improve both access and outcomes are core to our mission. Each year, we invest and support local and national organizations to improve the health and lives of those we serve.
