The California Wellness Foundation

The California Wellness Foundation is a private, independent foundation established in 1992 as a result of Health Net's conversion from nonprofit to for-profit status.

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

The foundation focuses on eight health issues which include diversity in health professions; environmental health; healthy aging; mental health; teenage pregnancy prevention; violence prevention; women's health; and work and health.
