Our Approach

Embedded in all that we do is our commitment to advancing health justice. This commitment is seen in our values and how we approach our work.   

We are community-driven. 

We believe that those most affected by health injustices are best positioned to identify effective priorities and strategies for transformational change in their communities. 

We work for lasting systemic equity.  

We have a commitment to racial equity with a bias for policy and systems changes that address root causes, rather than direct services. As a catalytic funder, we take risks where others cannot. We take the long-term view to achieve lasting impact at scale.

We partner with trust.

We center relationships by leading with trust, respect, openness, and humility. We support and collaborate with others for collective action, rather than dictate what is needed. We embrace learning and hold ourselves accountable to the community. 

Priority Populations 

It shouldn’t matter where you live, how much money you make, or what your race or ethnicity is – everyone should have the ability to shape their communities and access the resources they need for good health. Interact for Health focuses on groups that are facing the greatest barriers to health and well-being. Our priority populations include the following:  

  • Black   
  • Hispanic   
  • LGBTQ+   
  • Children and families with low incomes   
  • Rural communities
