Celebrating 20 Years of Community Impact

BHHS Legacy Foundation

BHHS Legacy Foundation supports organizations that enhance health and quality of life in the Greater Phoenix area and the Tri-State region of northern Arizona. It does this by funding grants to nonprofits with health-related programs, nurturing collaborative partnerships, and raising funds through Legacy Connection to support community organizations. To date, BHHS Legacy Foundation has invested more than $110 million in nonprofits to support programs in our communities.

Creating Pathways to Better Health

BHHS Legacy Foundation works to help communities in ways that make them healthier for everyone. Our goal is to improve the population’s health and prepare the state’s workforce through highly effective programs and services. The following focus areas guide us in this mission.

Increase Access to Healthcare

Well-being stems from a network of professionals, treatments, and services that help people to thrive. We invest in resources that increase and improve access to healthcare through medical, mental health, and oral health services for high-risk, underserved, and uninsured populations.

Strengthen the Community

We assist community-strengthening efforts that are working to solve local healthcare issues affecting Arizona’s most vulnerable groups. By getting these populations the supports they need, they can reach their full potential, which benefits our communities and society as a whole.
