Addressing health and racial disparities requires a long-term commitment to working with and investing in communities

Sierra Health Foundation promotes health, racial equity and racial justice in communities in 26 Northern California counties. Learn about our core priority areas, programs and funded partners below.

Legacy Programs

Through our legacy programs, we support nonprofit health and human service organizations through education and collaboration, strengthen the leadership abilities of nonprofit health and human service managers, respond to health needs and concerns, and support nonprofit fundraising events. Our long-term programs include:

Children, Youth and Families

Funded community partners strengthen family wellness by creating safe gathering spaces and better food access.

Economic Stability and Opportunity

This funding strategy supports mechanisms, such as guaranteed income, that help families create wealth.

Land, Water and Climate Health Equity

Funded partners address climate change in California, which is a threat multiplier for our most vulnerable communities.

Policy and Systems Change

Funds support durable policy change in inclusive economic development, climate resilience and health and racial equity.
