7 Elements of a Healthy Community

We are committed to creating an inclusive community where everyone has equitable access to opportunity and the benefits of a healthy community.

The Seven Elements of a Healthy Community framework has guided our work for nearly ten years. It identifies seven different elements of community life that when combined, make up a healthy community. This framework allows us to take a deeper dive and examine the combined philanthropic investment, strategies and community engagement within each element.

Arts & Culture

A healthy community encourages a wide variety of recreational, historical, and cultural opportunities.

Basic Needs

A healthy community creates a compassionate social, economic, and political environment where people have full opportunities to meet basic needs for themselves and their families, to build assets, and to advance themselves.


A healthy community fosters an economy that is diverse, vital and innovative, that grows strong businesses and business districts, and creates adequate jobs and income for residents.


A healthy community opens themselves to new ideas and provides high quality education and life-long learning for all members of the community.


A healthy community helps preserve and sustain the environment.


A healthy community assures access to high quality health services on a personal, community and systems level and promotes a healthy lifestyle.


A healthy community assures equal opportunities to participate in decision making and enhance diversity, promoting a sense of pride and shared purpose.
