Cone Health Foundation’s mission is to measurably improve the health of the people in Greensboro.

To achieve this, we are working to strengthen our strategy and culture to advance health equity.

As with so many other wellness indicators, Covid data points to clear disparities based on race. If we at Cone Health Foundation are to achieve our mission, we’ve got to look deeper at how these inequities continue to play out, examine our role in them, and begin to do our work differently.

To achieve our mission, we are listening and learning with our community

For the past 18 months our Board and staff have been engaged in a process to learn about, question and wrestle with what it means to best serve Greensboro’s diverse communities. We are committed to listening and to have our work informed and guided by those with lived experiences of inequities.

To start, we have extended a seventh year of funding

As we do the work to examine our grantmaking, we have extended a seventh year of funding to our grantees in our priority funding areas: access to health care, adolescent pregnancy prevention, HIV and substance use and mental health disorders. We are proud of our grantees’ work and believe that multiyear grantmaking is an industry best practice to support organizations that know how to achieve health equity.

You are invited to follow our progress and stay in touch as we continue our journey to invest in health and create change.

Impact Report

As we prepared our 2019 Cone Health Foundation Impact Report we could not have imagined we would be sharing it with you during a global pandemic. Indeed, life has thrown us a major curveball. We are faced with unprecedented challenges, which underscore the importance of supporting our community’s most vulnerable people, especially in times of greatest need.
