Mission

Alameda Health System Foundation’s mission is to advance health equity in the communities served by Alameda Health System.


Vision

In advancing health equity, our ultimate goal is to build generational health and wealth in the communities we serve.

Act with Integrity
We are trustworthy and do what we say we’re going to do. We are good stewards of resources and relationships.

Partner for impact
We work together with Alameda Health System, our donors, and the community to advance health equity. We collaborate to ensure lasting change.

Innovate for good
We are courageous and mindful. We make space for innovation and put people first when solving problems.

Approach

We advance health equity by raising funds and community support for Alameda Health System initiatives that are culturally attuned and that eliminate health disparities and promote health and well-being. We partner with community stakeholders and work collaboratively to effect systemic change. We believe that health equity will be achieved when everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy and that this requires much more than providing access to quality medical care, although this is foundational. This requires breaking down obstacles to health: poverty and racism, and lack of access to quality education and housing, well-paying jobs, safe environments, and health care.
