Our Organization & Funding Strategy
Our mission, leadership and funding approach
Making a difference in people’s health
Helping people achieve better health – it’s at the heart of Aetna Foundation’s mission, and reflects a heritage of philanthropy that stretches more than 40 years. We work with local, national and select international organizations to spark innovative ideas and programs for improving health. Our focus is on helping those with limited access to quality care or the tools and knowledge to achieve healthier lifestyles.
Program funding strategy
The next great idea could emerge at a university, a national institution – or a small community non-profit. That’s why the Aetna Foundation directs its funding toward programs that are local, national and even international. Wherever our partners are, we look for initiatives that are impactful, scalable and focused on improving health among underserved populations.
