In the Community
Caring for our Community
For more than 70 years, Kaiser Permanente has had the same mission: to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and our communities. We’ve always known that good health goes beyond health care.
We believe healthy individuals need healthy communities to thrive, and healthy communities need healthy people.
We have a broad approach to improving the health and well-being of our communities that go beyond our grants and sponsorships. We recognize the impacts of social determinants like education, safe neighborhoods, food access, support systems, and employment on the health of our communities. We seek to make “upstream” investments in schools, neighborhood parks, local clinics, and a wide range of community-based organizations to improve “downstream” health outcomes.
Here in the Sacramento and Roseville areas, we have identified four critical health needs where we focus our efforts:

Our focus areas of need were identified through a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), which we conduct every three years in partnership with other healthcare providers in the region. Read the latest CHNA reports for Roseville, Sacramento and South Sacramento here.
Community Benefit Grants
Through our annual Community Benefit grants program, Kaiser Permanente supports local organizations that are working to improve the health of the communities we serve. Our 2017-2019 grants are focused on addressing the four health needs listed above.
At this time, Kaiser Permanente North Valley is not accepting any new grant applications. Updates to our grantmaking process will be provided on this website.
Community Event Sponsorships
Each year through our sponsorship process, Kaiser Permanente supports organizations and events that improve the health of the communities we serve and businesses that improve economic vitality, and community growth and development.
We are postponing new event sponsorship decisions while we wait to see if state and local stay-at-home orders and social-distancing guidelines are extended.
