COVID-19 Update: Local health funders are convening regularly to discuss philanthropic responses. Interested funders should contact the group's Public Policy Fellow to inquire.
Philanthropy New York’s Health Working Group includes a diverse array of funders focused on all sorts of interventions, direct service support, research, policy work and more. Together, they bring their own unique knowledge, perspectives and experiences to the table with other experts in the field to explore how their resources might be put to maximally effective use. Some are working only locally or across the state, while others are working nationwide, but all value meeting with their colleagues and talking about contemporary issues that present new challenges and opportunities in their work.
The group also regularly meets with key government officials who are central to determining how city, state and federal government agencies proceed on a variety of health issues.
