The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is the nation’s largest philanthropy dedicated solely to health.

Since 1972, we have worked to identify the most pressing health issues facing America. We believe that good health and health care are essential to the well-being and stability of our society and the vitality of our families and communities.

Our work is guided by a fundamental premise: We are stewards of private funds that must be used in the public’s interest.

Together with our grantees and collaborators, we strive to bring about meaningful, lasting change—with the goal of building a Culture of Health that enables all in our diverse society to lead healthier lives, now and for generations to come.
