Our Approach

The de Beaumont Foundation’s mission is to transform public health in the United States by improving the effectiveness and capacity of local and state health departments. We strive to create meaningful, long-term partnerships that are built around not only financial support, but also a sharing of knowledge and expertise through active participation and technical assistance.

The Foundation embraces a hybrid approach to philanthropy—part grantmaker and part think tank. We support the work of our nonprofit partners through traditional grants but we also develop and implement programs and research projects internally in our core program areas: workforce development, building infrastructure, and information & data. In all of its grantmaking, the de Beaumont Foundation strives to support model programs that can be easily replicated and/or taken to scale.
