Share Your Ideas

If you’re reading this, chances are that you’re interested – like we are – in transforming health and health care in the United States. You’re impatient about improving health and health care in this country – incremental improvements won’t do. You have an original perspective on an entrenched problem, and a vision for solving it that will fundamentally change business-as-usual.

We want to hear from you.

Here are just a few ways you can share your ideas with Pioneer:

  • Talk to us on Twitter: We’re always looking for new people and organizations with whom to exchange articles and ideas. Join us at @rwjf.
  • Join the Pioneering Ideas community: Read and comment on the Pioneering Ideas blog, where we share frequent project updates, Q&As and food for thought from team members and other leaders we admire. Drop us a line at if you’d like to submit a guest post.
  • Health us identify the problems: Participate in our targeted calls for problems to share your perspective on the key obstacles to ensuring quality health and health care for all Americans. The better we understand the problems, the more effectively we can select solutions to fund. View our current call for problems.
  • Propose solutions: Learn more about our funding strategy and submit a brief proposal for our team to consider. In addition to accepting new proposals at any time, we periodically issue targeted calls for proposals, like this one focused on behavioral economics.

Maybe you’re a health care provider, or maybe you’re a social scientist, a technologist or an entrepreneur. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living. What matters is your depth of understanding about an intractable problem in this country’s health and health care systems, and the originality and boldness of your vision for enacting change.

We look forward to hearing from you. Together, we can make lasting change.

We're Open to New Ideas
