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.

 

Since 1993, Health Foundation has awarded more than
$115 million to public and nonprofit organizations focused on improving health and health services throughout the region.

 

In today's changing world, Health Foundation is one less variable. With our unwavering commitment to improving health, forming collaborations and advancing policies and practices which benefit South Floridians, we are the Foundation for a healthy community.
