    Tennessee Health Foundation

    Since 2003, the Tennessee Health Foundation has promoted our philanthropic mission by identifying statewide needs and providing funding through grants initiatives that promote healthy lifestyles for Tennessee residents. These grants may improve the health, public education or economic development of the communities we serve.

    We establish health initiatives aimed at prevention, intervention and education.


    We support effective multicultural approaches for developing health lifestyles and enhance collaborative community partnerships for broader access to health resources. Our exploration of innovative solutions is aimed at breaking cycles of health neglect.

    Focus on Funding

    We aim to support projects that reflect the foundation's mission and emphasize healthy living, health care access and quality of life. These projects should:

    • Emphasize solutions and be easy to measure.
    • Serve a need for a large population.
    • Promote community involvement and participation that can be replicated.
    • Connect multiple diverse organizations, causes and groups of individuals.

    The Foundation's Past, Present and Future

    The foundation has supported dozens of initiatives statewide designed to improve Tennesseans’ healthy living habits. Learn more about the Foundation's contributions here.

    We are constantly re-evaluating the foundation's goals. This year, we are placing an emphasis on health care workforce needs, health disparities and at-risk populations, specifically addressing the problems of infant mortality, childhood obesity and improving patient safety and quality.
