The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) is dedicated to advancing meaningful, measurable improvements in the way the health care delivery system provides care to the people of California, particularly those with low incomes and those whose needs are not well served by the status quo. We work to ensure that people have access to the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford.
CHCF informs policymakers and industry leaders, invests in ideas and innovations, and connects with changemakers to create a more responsive, patient-centered health care system.
CHCF funds projects that are aligned with its strategic goals; have relevance to California health care as outlined in these goals; and generally have implications beyond a single institution.
While unsolicited requests are accepted by the foundation, most of our grants are solicited or awarded through a competitive request for proposals.
