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

Since our founding in 1972, RWJF has worked to improve health and healthcare in the United States. We support efforts to build a national Culture of Health rooted in equity that provides every individual with a fair and just opportunity for health and wellbeing, no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they have.


Our Approach

RWJF works with others to identify, understand, confront, and remove the structural barriers to health and well-being, including racism, powerlessness, discrimination, and their consequences.

We do this by supporting research, programs, policies, and practices aimed at bringing about meaningful change and improving the lives of everyone in our nation now and for generations to come.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We believe that only through valuing our differences and similarities, and remaining vigilant in advancing equity, will we be able to maintain an equitable workplace and actively pursue equity in all aspects of our work.
