About Us

The de Beaumont Foundation advances policy, builds partnerships, and strengthens public health to create communities where people can achieve their best possible health.

Our strategic priorities are to:

  • Advance policies that make communities healthier.
  • Support partnerships across sectors that impact the health of communities.
  • Support and strengthen the public health system and workforce.
  • Shift the national conversation from healthcare to health, to build awareness of and support for the drivers that improve health.

The Foundation was created in 1998 by Pierre S. (Pete) de Beaumont, with the broad purpose to relieve human suffering. Mr. de Beaumont wanted the Foundation to have a broad mandate and supported a concentration on public health, where he thought his resources could make the biggest impact. The Foundation was fully funded after Mr. de Beaumont’s death in December 2010.
