Health Foundation South Florida

Health Foundation South Florida aims to improve the health of all South Floridians. Since its establishment in 1993, the foundation has awarded more than $120 million in grants. To help address the social determinants of health, the foundation catalyzed a special Community Building and Economic Prosperity Initiative that is encouraging area anchor institutions to support community wealth building by creating new vehicles for community engagement, supporting local businesses, developing quality educational and health services, adopting mechanisms for local hiring and contracting, and boosting community economic development through direct capital investment.
