Promoting Health in Greater Williamsburg

The Williamsburg Health Foundation works to improve the health of individuals who live Greater Williamsburg. We recognize that “health is a dynamic state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Our vision is “individuals making healthy choices in a community with health opportunity for all.”  

The Foundation not only provides grants to improve the current and future health of our community but also convenes groups in the community to solve health challenges that cannot be addressed by one agency alone.

We understand that having easy access to healthy food and active living are critical to lifelong health and well-being.  The Foundation is determined to create new opportunities for individuals in Greater Williamsburg to live healthy lives.  

The Williamsburg Health Foundation is governed by an experienced and dedicated Board of Trustees with diverse backgrounds, professions, and interests as well as demonstrated commitment to the Williamsburg area and community.
