In order to be considered for funding, nonprofit organizations must ensure that their mission, vision, priorities, target population and service area align with GHF’s.
Georgetown Health Foundation generates and accelerates positive change in their Community’s health.
They imagine their Community as one in which all are empowered to build and sustain healthy, productive lives and they believe the health of Georgetown residents is influenced by the environment in which they live.
Georgetown Health Foundation agrees with the World Health Organization’s definition of health as ‘a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of infirmity.’
They believe that social determinants of health are powerful influencers on this comprehensive definition of health. Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These forces and systems include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies, and political systems.
