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 to help the public health workforce; build public health infrastructure; and improve information and data management.
