Good Health and Realized Potential for All
A Future Bold Enough to Match the Times
The Endowment for Health works to improve the health and reduce the burden of illness for the people of New Hampshire, especially the vulnerable and underserved. We envision a future where all people who call New Hampshire their home are happy, healthy and thriving. A future where healthy aging is easy, and every child has what they need to grow to be their best self. A future where differences among our people are welcomed and celebrated. A future where geography and circumstances do not define our wellbeing. A future of hopeful possibilities. Join us.
