Adding value to improve
the health of South Floridians


The mission of Health Foundation of South Florida is to improve the health of people in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties. By funding providers and supporting programs to promote health and prevent disease, we make measurable and sustainable differences in the health of individuals and families.

$115 million to public and nonprofit organizations focused on improving health and health services throughout the region.
