Our Mission

To initiate and support innovative and forward-looking health-related projects aimed at improving health, social well-being, and educational attainment.

Who We Are

What we support

Social Determinants of Health / Health Equity

We have elected to significantly focus our social determinants of health funding interests around emphasizing the integration of childhood, family, and community health in new ways for our foundation. TCI wants to resource efforts that advance optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for families, children, and youth.

Health Workforce Development

This funding area understands that the health workforce shortages and aging population will require progressive and fundamental reshaping of health roles and the way in which patient care is delivered.
