This year, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is commemorating 40 years of contributions to health and health care in the United States.
“Our future grantmaking aims to tackle America’s current health challenges head on. We won’t succeed on every front—no one does—but the lessons we learn will inform future solutions. That’s the role of 21st century philanthropists. We look at what no one else seems able or willing to do, and we give it a shot.”
- RWJF President and CEO Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, MD
Here's how RWJF has marked this momentous occasion:
- The Foundation's Board of Trustees approved up to $425 million in grantmaking in 2013. Areas of focus will include: increasing efforts to help people stay healthy; lowering national health care costs; and improving access to high-quality care, delivered by a diverse and abundant workforce.
- RWJF honored 10 winners of its first-ever Young Leader Awards, recognizing leaders 40 or under for their exceptional contributions to the health of the nation.
- What will health and health care look like in the United States in 2032? RWJF engaged the Institute for Alternative Futures (IAF) to develop a set of four scenarios. Read the report.
