The American Heart Association’s Social Impact Fund is helping close that gap by supporting projects that can change neighborhoods — and improve the lives of everyone there.
Where you live shouldn’t determine how well or how long you live, but it does. About 80 percent of a person’s health is determined by factors other than access and quality of clinical care.
Through its Social Impact Fund, the American Heart Association invests in local entrepreneurs, small businesses and organizations that are breaking down the social and economic barriers to healthy lives.
The Fund is improving the health and wellbeing in our communities of greatest need in three ways:
Overcoming the systemic challenges within the health sector
Expanding the pool of change makers
Empowering local communities to address solutions to social determinants of health
On March 3, 2021, join me as Lisa Hinton and Raymond Guthrie walk us through an exploration of venture philanthropy in our communities in an effort to bridge the gap and create sustainable, long-term solutions.
