Winter 2013 Grantee

This Grantee special edition is devoted to The California Wellness Foundation’s 20-plus years of funding in violence prevention. In the cover story, we address the current national discussion around gun violence prevention and examine the Foundation’s comprehensive strategy of using a public health approach to save lives. Also featured is a commentary by Board Chair Dr. Barbara C. Staggers; a spotlight on InsideOut Writers; a reprint of our 2011 Grantee cover story “Violence Prevention: A Long-term Commitment To Keep Youth Safe;” a timeline of milestones in California’s violence prevention movement; violence prevention resources, and more.

The Adobe PDF version allows you to view and print the entire report exactly as it appeared in print. It includes all of the full-size color photos from the report.

Our Guiding Principles

Guided by our mission, we pursue the following goals through our grantmaking:

  • To address the particular health needs of traditionally underserved populations, including low-income individuals, people of color, youth and residents of rural areas.
  • To support and strengthen nonprofit organizations that seek to improve the health of underserved populations.
  • To recognize and encourage leaders who are working to increase health and wellness within their communities.
  • To inform policymakers and opinion leaders about important wellness and health care issues.


The mission of The California Wellness Foundation is to improve the health of the people of California by making grants for health promotion, wellness education and disease prevention.
