Georgetown Health Foundation’s multi-faceted philanthropy is grounded in our rich history of relationship-building. We leverage our resources to generate and accelerate positive change in our community’s health through programs and connections.
Georgetown Health Foundation supports nonprofit organizations offering a range of safety net services, from primary health care to emergency shelter through our grantmaking.
Georgetown Health Foundation generates and accelerates positive change in our Community’s health.
The Foundation works collaboratively with its community to improve the health of Georgetown residents through partnerships, experience, knowledge, and funding.
We imagine our Community as one in which all are empowered to build and sustain healthy, productive lives and we believe the health of Georgetown residents is influenced by the environment in which they live.
Georgetown Health Foundation agrees with the World Health Organization’s definition of health as ‘a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of infirmity.
We believe the social determinants of health (SDoH) are powerful influencers on this comprehensive definition of health.
“The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These forces and systems include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies and political systems.”
GHF’s strategic priorities reflect the critical needs identified in our 2015 Southeast Georgetown Needs Assessment.
