Philanthropy Ohio and its members strive for a just and vibrant Ohio through policywork that promotes the health and well-being of Ohio’s families and children. Health advocacy efforts focus on long-term, systemic issues where philanthropy’s voice can inspire, resonate and transform communities. When advocacy work and public policy aligns with funding priorities, Philanthropy Ohio members can have an even greater impact. By leveraging our collective expertise, authority and resources, we can scale advocacy solutions more effectively.
Philanthropy Ohio supports health policy reform that improves the health of all Ohioans
For over a decade, Philanthropy Ohio and its members have engaged in policies that promote the health and well-being of Ohio’s families and children. The Health Initiative is a member-driven coalition that supports policies that advance anti-racist and anti-discriminatory policies; improve access to mental health services and birth equity; maintain access to public benefits; and pursue innovative approaches to addressing the social determinants of health.
Join the Health Initiative to convene with your peers who support health, and:
- Build relationships with policymakers, including the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation, the Ohio General Assembly, members of Congress and key state agencies;
- Be informed on the most current research, trends and health policy issues at the state and federal levels; and
- Advocate for policies to address the social determinants of health, increase equity and improve the health of all Ohioans.
