Champion Health Equity
Why is this important?
There is strength in numbers, and we believe in the ability of our fellow Coloradans to catalyze lasting change. For equity to be a reality, voices must be heard and skills developed to create fair opportunities for all Coloradans to be healthy. As we look toward the future of our state, building the capacity of individuals and organizations will be essential in reaching health equity.
What are we doing?
We support individuals and organizations as they develop and strengthen the skills necessary to advocate for and promote a more equitable health environment—one where our policies reflect our priorities, and health is in reach for all Coloradans.
What are our priorities?
We focus our work in the two following priorities:
- Advocacy: Our goal is to support a continuum of advocacy that advances policies reflecting Coloradans’ health priorities, so that Coloradans’ interests and priorities are front and center in shaping policy decisions that impact health.
- Capacity Building: Our goal is to strengthen individual, organizational and network capacity to improve health and increase health equity, so that people and institutions are equipped to address health inequities and work together to solve health challenges.
How do we support this area?
The Foundation is bringing health in reach for all Coloradans by engaging closely with communities across the state through investing, policy advocacy, learning and capacity building.
