Purpose and Activities

The mission of the Consumer Health Foundation is to achieve health justice in the Washington, DC region through activities that advance the health and well being of historically underserved communities. It supports initiatives that empower consumers to make decisions and take actions that improve personal, family and community health.


Established in 1994 in DC; converted from the proceeds of the sale of Group Health Association to Humana, Inc - The foundation was the first health philanthropy in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to emerge as a result of a conversion of a non-profit entity to for-profit status. Over the past 10 years, the foundation has provided roughly $17 million in grants to consumer-focused, community-based groups throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The grantmaker is a signatory to Philanthropy’s Promise, an initiative of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP). By signing on, the grantmaker has committed to allocating the majority of its grantmaking dollars to marginalized communities and at least 25 percent to social justice strategies, such as advocacy, community organizing, and civic engagement
