Promoting Health in Greater Williamsburg

The Williamsburg Health Foundation supports nonprofit programs working to improve the health of citizens in the Greater Williamsburg region. It focuses on strengthening access to quality health care and promoting responsible health practices.

The Foundation provides millions of dollars in funding to nonprofits each year, though it also supports health programs by promoting collaboration and offering programs that build the skills of nonprofit leaders.

We work with leaders in government, education, business and the community to address the health challenges of today and prepare for those of tomorrow.

The Foundation has provided more than $52 million to community health programs since it was created in 1996.
