Aetna Foundation

AETNA FOUNDATION'S mission is to promote wellness, health, and access to high-quality health care for everyone, while supporting the communities we serve.

Helping people achieve better health – it’s at the heart of the Aetna Foundation’s mission, and reflects a heritage of philanthropy that stretches back more than 40 years. Our focus is on helping those limited access to quality care, or the tools and knowledge to achieve healthier lifestyles. We partner with national and select international organizations, funding their pioneering approaches to improving health among large groups of people. At the same time, we give grants to local nonprofits across the United States nurturing innovations that can inspire healthier lifestyles across communities. Our work brings together policymakers, businesses, health professionals, and community nonprofits to look at a given issue holistically. That way, we can work together to pursue the changes needed for positive health outcomes for individuals and communities.
