The Humana Foundation, philanthropic arm of Humana Inc., has announced it is modifying its grantmaking to align with a new overall focus on upstream social determinants of health. This approach aligns with Humana’s work to help people have more “healthy days” by improving the health of the communities Humana serves by 20 percent by 2020. The foundation said this new strategy will help it achieve its overall goal of contributing to greater health equity (attainment of the highest level of health for all people) in the communities it serves. In Humana’s corporate hometown of Louisville, Ky., and in seven additional communities Humana serves, the foundation expects to make a greater impact by making fewer yet larger grants beginning in 2018. The grants will have a longer-term focus, recognizing that the change the foundation seeks will likely take years to achieve, working in partnership with others. The foundation will also continue to fund select organizations in Louisville, nonprofits that align to the foundation’s new strategy and/or with whom the foundation has a long-standing history of support, through a new Corporate Headquarters Community Relations initiative.
