The Rx Foundation supports collaborative initiatives to promote health justice, healing and wellness in communities throughout the United States.

About us

Advancing Health Justice in the United States

The Rx Foundation has made grants totaling over $35 million since our founding in 2002, and the resulting collaborations have addressed a wide range of challenges in the health care delivery system and in communities impacted by health inequities. We engage with diverse partners committed to a future in which all communities build their connections, capacity and power to address the root causes of poor health.
