Investments in Health

One of the most powerful ways Health Resources in Action takes on health challenges is through guiding philanthropic and governmental investments in health. With our grantmaking and management solutions, today’s philanthropic and social change leaders can spur catalytic changes in public health and biomedical research. HRiA identifies individuals and organizations who are uniquely positioned through their innovative ideas or skills to make a difference in critical areas. Working with public and private funding sources, we bring together those willing to invest in change and those with the ability to develop solutions.  The Medical Foundation at HRiA brings over fifty years of experience, and national leadership in grantmaking, to clients interested in investing in health. Our grantmaking services include:
