Annual Reports to the Community

We are excited to share the Medica Foundation Annual Community Reports. We hope you enjoy reading stories that feature the challenging and rewarding work of our nonprofit partners. It is an honor and privilege to support so many great organizations whose efforts help improve the health of the communities in which we live.

Breaking Barriers

The Foundation's mission is clear and straightforward: improving people's health and removing barriers to getting health care. The path, however, is not so clear and straightforward. What it comes down to is the imperative to improve the health of those in need across differences in cultures and life experiences. That's the kind of work you'll read about in this report and that we are proud to support.

Our Future In Training

The promise of a brighter future is something many of us take for granted. But this promise is an illusion for many. It is not real or attainable. Circumstances like poverty, homelessness, mental health challenges, lack of access to support and care, and lack of timely response to a crisis all contribute to extinguishing the promise of a brighter future.  The grants we funded in 2015 were all about breaking the cycle and offering people the help they need to train for a different future. As you read this report, you’ll see themes emerge.

Cultivating Connections

When it comes to change, it can never be a solo effort. Change is the result of the connections we make, and the success we have in cultivating relationships and providing resources to meet the varying needs within our communities. That’s why the Medica Foundation uses a multi-faceted funding approach to address these needs.

The Numbers Tell the Tale

We know that it is often difficult to get the most from our health care system. It can be fragmented and challenging to navigate. This can be especially true for people with lower incomes, with physical or mental disabilities, or whose cultural background doesn't equip them to deal effectively with the system. Our goal is to support those activities and programs that fill gaps, provide guidance, improve care and raise awareness.

Victims of Circumstance. Or Not.

It's the lucky person who has abundant opportunities and favorable circumstances. For many, circumstances conspire to limit opportunities. The wings to fly are elusive for many of us. However, circumstances can be changed. The Medica Foundation is committed to funding programs and initiatives that strengthen the health of individuals and communities. That means finding innovative programs that don't take circumstances for granted, but work to change them so that people have the opportunity to thrive.
