The National Partnership for the Health Care Safety Net is supported by a grant from the Kaiser Permanente National Community Benefit and The East Bay Community Foundation.
Kaiser Permanente’s Community Benefit is dedicated to helping local communities achieve total health. Through expanding access to care, improving environments, and shaping health knowledge, Community Benefit has made significant investments in community-based health.
The East Bay Community Foundation connects community needs in Alameda and Contra Costa counties with individuals, families and organizations interested in charitable giving—and promotes change through leading initiatives, through advocacy, and through partnerships with business, government, and private foundations. Formed in 1928, the Foundation is a leading resource on charitable giving and community needs, stewarding more than 500 charitable funds and endowments.
In addition to its role as the donor of the Kaiser Permanente National Community Benefit and The East Bay Community Foundation, Kaiser Permanente is also an active leader in improving policies, systems, and environmental factors in the health field. Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit health plans, serving more than 9 million members in nine states and the District of Columbia, with headquarters in Oakland, CA. Kaiser Permanente’s mission is to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of its’ members and the communities it serves. In addition, Kaiser Permanente also supports community-based efforts that address the upstream factors affecting health through high reach, high impact, and evidence-based interventions targeting sustainable change.
