Advancing Health and Wellness: Many daunting challenges face us at every turn. The issues are well known but persistent: if the area comprising the border region were America’s 51st state, it would rank at or near the bottom in nearly all measures of prosperity, community health, educational opportunity and quality of life. It is more than tragic, it is wasteful, because these challenges do yield to informed and vigorous action. BPP members and partners believe that the nature of these issues demands strong and informed civic participation, leadership and cross-border understanding and collaboration. Specifically, we seek to build and strengthen community philanthropy by supporting and advocating for systemic solutions to systemic challenges in the areas of education, health, environment, poverty, security and financial literacy. So BPP draws together our academic and research partners to inform change, our philanthropic and corporate partners to fund change and our nonprofit partners to implement change.
