Welcome to Cone Health Foundation's website.  This website is designed for easy access to information about Cone Health Foundation, how to apply to our grantmaking program, find resources, research, and information about the health of people in Guilford County. 

We focus our grantmaking efforts on these priority areas:

Cone Health Foundation’s mission is:  To invest in the development and support of activities, programs and organizations that measurably improve the health of people in the greater Greensboro area.  In order to deliver on this mission, our new strategic plan calls for maximizing and measuring impact within these priority areas.

We are in our third year of implementation under a new strategic plan.  Our strategic focus reflects both continuity and change.  We remain committed to our four focus areas mentioned above, along with an advocacy strategy that is critical to achieving our mission and creating the changes needed to improve health in Greensboro.  Key to our efforts will be our ability to collaborate with our valued partners and leverage the relationships we have developed since 1997.  We hope that you will return to this site often to learn more about our work.
