New Name & Look, Same Commitment to Better Serve our Community

Dear Community,

For 20 years, we’ve supported local nonprofit organizations to address health equity issues among communities that need it most. But times are changing. And so are we.

The Brandywine Health Foundation is proud to launch a brand new name, logo, and an entirely new look as part of our ongoing evolution. Introducing The Alliance for Health Equity, Strengthening Communities!

This marks a significant milestone in our 20-year journey, providing an opportunity to reflect on everything that the original Brandywine Health Foundation brand and mission stood for—and everything that we aspire to become as we move forward into an exciting future.

2020-2022 Strategic Plan

Building on existing assets within the Greater Coatesville helps to reshape our community for greater equality and lasting change. This provides the underpinning of our strategic plan that enables us to carry out core activities. Our Strategic Plan strives to:

  • Improve health and racial inequities
  • Build community power to make decisions that improves community health
  • Foster collaboration and partnerships
  • Support transformational community change

Harness the Power of Community & Partnership for a Greater Coatesville!

Leading Positive
Community-Driven Change

We believe if we empower people in the places where they live, lifting their voices and building their power to shape systems, services and programs they need the most, it leads to community driven solutions. Community Voice builds community capacity and leadership to effect change that addresses inequities caused by institutional and systemic racism and discriminatory practices.
