Community Benefit Program

Kaiser Permanente’s Community Benefit program supports a range of activities to enrich the health of our communities. The East Bay Area Community Benefit Program provides funding to local nonprofit health and human service organizations with an emphasis on underserved populations. We do this through responsive grants and sponsorships for community events. We believe in the power of partnership and working together to make a bigger impact on the health of our communities.

Please visit our website to learn more about our grants, sponsorships and Community Health Needs Assessment.
