View the 2014 Report (PDF) | View the Questionnaire (PDF)

The California Wellness Foundation commissioned outside consultants, Julia Pennbridge, Ph.D., and the National Health Foundation, to conduct the Grants Program Survey in 2014. The survey was distributed to organizations that included: grantees during 2013, organizations that applied for funding in 2013 and organizations that were denied funding in 2013. The evaluators’ report, survey results and the survey questionnaire can be accessed above.

The survey is part of the Foundation's commitment to our organizational values, in particular, learning, accountability and excellence. These regular surveys have been instrumental in our efforts to improve customer service and our approach to grantmaking.

This questionnaire is for informational purposes only. Please do not complete and mail it to the Foundation. Feedback and comments may be sent through to our general email address:

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.
