A Profile of New Health Foundations

A Profile of New Health Foundations

In March, Grantmakers in Health (GIH) released A Profile of New Health Foundations (21 pages, PDF), the fourth in a series of surveys of new health foundations conducted by the organization. The survey identifies 138 entities that fit GIH's definition of a new health foundation — i.e., "grantmaking entities that are the direct result of a transaction ivolving hospitals, health plans, or health systems" — and, for each foundation included, provides name, location, date of formation, type of entity, most current assets, grantmaking areas, and (when available) Web site address, making it an excellent introduction to a significant source of funding in the field of health philanthropy.
