Our Funders

The Center for Health Journalism Fellowships, Center for Health Journalism Digital, our Webinar series and other initiatives at our USC Annenberg School of Journalism center depend on the support of foundations and individuals. Our donors believe in our mission and support the independence of our work and the diversity of viewpoints expressed in our content and programming. 

The California Endowment, a private, statewide health foundation, provides primary core support to our family of programs. The California Endowment was created in 1996 as a result of Blue Cross of California's creation of WellPoint Health Networks, a for-profit corporation. The California Endowment's mission is to expand access to affordable, quality health care for underserved individuals and communities, and to promote fundamental improvements in the health status of all Californians. The California Endowment's multicultural approach to health is reinforced through investments made in local communities. Its work involves a dual focus: grant making and policy and advocacy. 
 

The Annie E. Casey Foundation, based in Baltimore, provides support for our National Health Journalism Fellowship and a related reporting grant, the Fund for Journalism on Child Well-Being. The foundation focuses its grantmaking on issues that negatively affect children: poverty, unnecessary disconnection from family and communities with limited access to opportunity.

Blue Shield of California Foundation works to improve the lives of all Californians, particularly the underserved, by making health care accessible, effective, and affordable, and by ending domestic violence. It provides support for our California Health Journalism Fellowship.

California Health Care Foundation provides support for our California Health Data Fellowship.  CHCF works to ensure that people have access to the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford. 

First 5 LA  provides support to the Center's Fund for Journalism on Child Well-Being. It is an early childhood advocacy organization working collaboratively across Los Angeles County. It was created in 1998 to invest L.A. County's allocation of funds from California's Proposition 10 tobacco tax. Since then, it has invested more than $1.2 billion in efforts that benefit children from before birth to age 5. 

The Hunt Family generously supports the Dennis A. Hunt Fund for Health Journalism, launched by friends and family of the late Dennis Hunt, co-founder of our programs, to honor his legacy.

National Institute for Health Care Management Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving the U.S. health care system by funding and conducting research and educational activities and by fostering dialogue between public and private stakeholders. It provides support for our Health Matters series of webinars.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is the nation’s largest philanthropy dedicated solely to health. It works to build a national "culture of health" by placing well-being at the center of every aspect of life.

USC Good Neighbors Campaign, created in 1993, provide financial support to university-community partnerships involving collaboration between USC faculty and staff and local nonprofit organizations that have a visible, positive impact on the neighborhoods surrounding the University Park and Health Sciences campuses. It provides support for Boyle Heights Beat, our bilingual youth news project with Hoy (Los Angeles Media Group).
