The Foundation

At CT Health, we are passionately committed to creating more access to better quality health care for populations of color and underserved communities across Connecticut. Not only that, but we are dedicated to doing it by fundamentally changing the health care system to make quantifiable, sustainable change with tangible impact.

Through our grantmaking, leadership development and public policy work, we are leveraging our resources and relationships to change how society views health and health care so that everyone—regardless of race, background, income level or age—can achieve optimal health. If you’re already working on health equity issues, we want to find ways to amplify them. If you’re not working on health equity issues, we want to see how your work relates to it.

The Connecticut Health Foundation:

  • Funds innovative programs and initiatives that change health systems to improve the health of all.
  • Promotes policy change.
  • Develops influential leaders who can champion health justice.
  • Changes structures and opinions that contribute to health inequities.
  • Elevates the voice of the consumer to ensure that the health care system reflects diverse consumer needs and preferences.
