WHA Foundation


The WHA Foundation, Inc. was formed in 1968 to support educational, research and charitable programs of the Wisconsin Hospital Association and its members. Today, as a 501(c)(3) organization, the Foundation focuses its grant making priorities on initiatives that have a statewide impact on health care in Wisconsin. The Foundation's three specific funding priorities include:

  • Health Care Workforce Development
  • Health Care Quality and Safety Initiatives
  • Collaborative Community Health Initiatives, through the annual Global Vision Community Partnership Award.
