• Description

The Foundation Center's report on health policy grantmaking in 1995 and 2002, Update on Foundation Health Policy Grantmaking, provides a fascinating window into the philanthropic sector's activities during a period in which health policy vastly declined as a central governmental concern. An important role of the nonprofit sector is to complement government, undertaking activities that are out of favor or overlooked by government. This report and its predecessor, which traced trends in health policy grantmaking between 1990 and 1995, show foundations' activities during a particularly interesting time in the health policy history of the United States.
