About Us

Since 1998, the de Beaumont Foundation has worked to transform public health in the United States.

The de Beaumont Foundation’s mission is to strengthen and transform public health in the United States. The Foundation improves the effectiveness and capacity of local and state health departments through research, collaboration, and strategic grantmaking.

The mission is grounded in the view that strong public health agencies are essential leaders and partners in their communities, protecting the public from health threats and promoting health with effective policies and programs. When governmental public health agencies catalyze change, lead action, and engage partners, they save lives and make communities healthier.

We connect with the right people, communities, and organizations to launch key initiatives. Then we work with our partners to leverage measurable results, growing projects from a local to a national scale.
