Healthcare Foundation

Vision, Mission, Focus Areas

As a 501 ( c ) (3) nonprofit organization, we raise funds in support of all those who live and work in our region, from northern Santa Rosa to the Mendocino border.

We believe every person – young and old, rich and poor, sick and healthy – deserves access to good healthcare – right here, close to home, where we live and work.


To be the leading proponent for health.


Bringing together our community to engage donors in the support of creating a healthier northern Sonoma County region.

Focus Areas

The Healthcare Foundation focuses our investments in three areas:

Healthcare Access, mental health and early childhood development.  Healthcare Access was our first focus area and since our inception in 2001, we’ve invested more than $23 million in front line providers of medical and dental care, as well as other relevant services. 

In 2016, we added two additional focus areas – mental health and early childhood development. We also began planning a new comprehensive grant-making process that kicks off in 2018.
