RWJF is working to build a Culture of Health where everyone has the opportunity to live a healthier life, including those who face barriers because of who they are, where they live, how much money they have, or the discrimination they face. Poor health disproportionately burdens people who live in places that lack opportunity and investment, creating gaps in health outcomes that are costly and preventable.
To help address this, RWJF has established a $200 million pool for impact investments. Building on a legacy portfolio of about $100M, the Foundation seeks to attract more capital for health and racial equity from co-investment partners such as banks and insurance companies to deepen the impact of its grantmaking and policy change efforts. By channeling capital markets, we aim to bolster a durable system of community investment through intermediaries that are exclusively dedicated to delivering capital and financial services to persons with low incomes and communities of color.
