Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funds

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is the nation’s largest philanthropy dedicated solely to health.

Since 1972, we’ve supported research and programs targeting some of America’s most pressing health issues—from substance abuse to improving access to quality health care.

And we have witnessed great progress. But we have also noticed that our nation has worked to improve health by focusing primarily on the health care system—when in fact, our health is influenced significantly by where we live, learn, work and play. And time and time again, we have come to recognize that no matter the issue, no single organization or sector can change the trajectory of America’s health alone.

At the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we believe that good health and health care are fundamental measures of our success as a nation.

In support of this belief, we fund program and policy initiatives in four areas which are each critical to health equity—enabling everyone in our nation to live a healthier life:

Health Systems
Catalyzing fundamental changes in health and health care systems to achieve measurably better outcomes for all.

Healthy Children, Healthy Weight
Enabling all children to attain their optimal physical, social and emotional well-being, including growing up at a healthy weight.

Healthy Communities
Creating the conditions that allow communities and their residents to reach their greatest health potential.

Health Leadership
Engaging a diverse array of leaders in all sectors with the vision, experience, and drive to help build a Culture of Health.

In relation to our focus areas, our grants and grant programs generally have three major aims:

Discover and Explore
Seeking creative solutions through targeted solicitations and an ongoing request for bold ideas with transformative potential.

Spread Model Interventions

Identifying and expanding public policies, community-based programs, system changes and other interventions that are having a meaningful impact on health.

Conduct Research and Evaluation
Expanding the evidence around key health issues, and evaluating, learning from, and sharing key lessons both from our own grantmaking and from other health-improvement initiatives tied to our areas of interest.
