The Langeloth Foundation supports health and racial equity outcomes for all people in order to foster and sustain safe and healthy communities.


The Langeloth Foundation envisions an equitable and just society free of systemic barriers where individuals and communities can reach their full potential.

We Believe

  • The field should be the driver of change and incubator of ideas.
  • Directly impacted individuals are necessary voices in shaping the narrative to inform policies that directly affect them.
  • Race, gender, economics, and legal status should not be barriers to full equity.
  • All systems and institutions should treat individuals and the communities in which they live and work with honesty, respect, and dignity.
  • Philanthropy supports change by investing in leadership, providing adequate resources to sustain strong institutions, and taking calculated risks.
  • Meaningful systems change requires patience and sustained investments coupled with a sense of urgency.


  • We support projects that change systems through policy, media & communications, advocacy & organizing, field building, leadership development, and narrative change.
  • We recognize that many public policies result in negative economic and social conditions that influence individual and community health; we invest in projects that seek to change these harmful and inequitable structural systems.
  • We select focus areas where our investment can contribute to meaningful system and policy change.
  • We partner and collaborate strategically.
  • We take measured risks.
  • We provide resources over time.
  • We support efforts to dismantle systemic and organizational barriers.
  • We invest in organizations, partnerships, and networks that change public policy to support the most affected.
  • We convene our focus area grantees so they have the time and space to network and build off each other’s work.
  • Our Mission remains constant, but we adapt our strategy as needed to respond to social and political realities.
