Brandywine Health Foundation’s Strategic Priorities for 2016 – 2019 is as follows:
Priority one: health equity - ensure that every resident of the Greater Coatesville community has the opportunity to make choices that will allow them to live a long and healthy life, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, disability, income or background.

Priority three: healthy community – improve community conditions that help impact the health of everyone in Greater Coatesville.
“The Brandywine Health Foundation is committed to strengthening the health and well-being of the greater Coatesville community by providing grant funds to the safety net organizations that provide high caliber, affordable medical, dental and behavioral health services, in addition to helping to improve the quality of life in a variety of ways for the residents who live in the Coatesville area,” said Margaret Rivello, Brandywine Health Foundation board member and chair of the foundation’s grantmaking committee. “Our board of directors and grantmaking committee have made the strategic decision to offer this grantmaking opportunity one time a year, during the fall, and look forward to reviewing the numerous applications demonstrating stellar programs and services to individuals in need.”
The Brandywine Health Foundation believes everyone deserves to be healthy and to grow up in a vibrant community. Foundation representatives said the challenge is that the greater Coatesville area has significant disparities in health based on race, income, ethnicity and where they reside. The Brandywine Health Foundation said it is changing lives and building a healthy community by: investing in organizations that help people live healthier lives; investing in young people; investing in projects that help Coatesville thrive; and bringing community members together to develop new solutions and new leaders for positive and lasting change in Coatesville.
Brandywine Health Foundation’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of people who live and work in the greater Coatesville area by fostering community partnerships, by providing capacity building support, and by making grants to promote health equity, healthy youth, and a healthy community.
