How do we stay in front of protecting affordable health care for the communities that we serve?
NCRP’s new brief “Foundations, Donors and Health Policy” is a handy resource for grantmakers and donors who are not yet sure how to respond to attempts to un-do recent advances in health equity.
The brief is not just for “health funders.”
“Whether or not your giving focuses specifically on health issues, it is likely that the current federal and state policy proposals and debates have implications for your causes and communities,” writes Lisa Ranghelli, author of the brief and senior director at NCRP.
Do you care about people with disabilities? The elderly? Racial equity? Gender equity? Creating jobs?
Regressive health policies will have an impact on these and other issues.
Action #3: Elevate stories of impact
Fund efforts to gather and tell the stories of how federal and state health programs are good for families and communities.
Not a funder?
Then help us get this to the hands of grantmakers and donors so they can start thinking about how to put their money behind the health of our communities.
We can’t afford to stay on the sidelines.
Imagine a world where all families have access to quality, affordable health care and all communities are thriving.
Learn and be inspired by what some funders and nonprofits are already doing to help make this a reality. You can, too.
