The California Endowment is a private, California-focused health foundation that advocates for health and health equity, and raises awareness of how and where health can happen. The Endowment does this by fighting to expand access to affordable, quality health care for underserved communities, and investing in fundamental improvements for the health of all Californians. Founded in 1996, The California Endowment supports the statewide Health Happens Here campaign which is reframing the conversation around health care from medical settings and individual choices to the idea that our health happens in neighborhoods, schools, and through aggressive prevention measures. In support of the Health Happens Here campaign, The Endowment is currently engaged in a 10-year Building Healthy Communities place-based plan. Launched in 2010, residents, community-based organizations and public institutions in 14 underserved communities across California are working to bring health back to their communities through advocacy and community organizing using 10 specific outcomes that will build community health as their framework. The Endowment is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, with regional offices in Sacramento, Oakland, Fresno and San Diego.
