Membership in the initiative is open to all Philanthropy Ohio members, with quarterly in-person meetings and monthly enews updates. The initiative focuses on:

  • Building relationships with policymakers, including the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation, the General Assembly, members of Congress and key state agencies;
  • Educating funders on current health issues and policies at the state and federal levels; and
  • Advocating for policies to address the social determinants of health, increase equity and improve the health of all Ohioans
