The mission of the Northwest Health Foundation is to advance, support and promote the health of the people of Oregon and southwest Washington.
Our foundation has been working since 1997, investing in programs and projects designed to improve the health of the people in Oregon, as well as Clark, Cowlitz, Pacific, Skamania, and Wahkiakum counties in southwest Washington.
NWHF is a conversion foundation: independent and charitable, funded with assets resulting from the sale of Oregon’s nonprofit PACC Health Plans.
Many of the organizations we support address the root causes of health through community-driven, “upstream” solutions. At the same time, NWHF is also actively engaged in advocating for sound policies that protect health.
