Alliance Healthcare Foundation Alliance Healthcare Foundation


Alliance Healthcare Foundation’s grant-making activities focus strategically on funding organizations whose programs benefit those under 250% of poverty, the uninsured and underinsured, children and the homeless.  Programs should advance health and wellness for these vulnerable populations and may include improving access to primary and specialty care, mental health and substance abuse services through the use of innovative and collaborative methods to get real results.  We are committed to serving the most vulnerable populations in San Diego & Imperial Counties through funding projects and programs that address access to healthcare, with a focus on increasing the capacity and coordination of the healthcare delivery system.

Mission Support Grants, Responsive Grants, and Innovation Initiative Award

We are committed to the principle that everyone should have access to appropriate, quality, and timely care.  We seek to partner with organizations that further this goal.  Our ultimate measure of success will be improvements in health outcomes for individuals and families, as well as a more robust healthcare safety net and strong public health infrastructure that will benefit everyone in San Diego & Imperial Counties.

In 2013, we established separate funding for Imperial County to give nonprofits in the area more of the resources they needed to help those in need. In 2014, we continued to grow in both Imperial and San Diego Counties, serving more organizations with our Mission Support Grants than ever before.
