The Humana Foundation catalyzes its resources to co-create communities where leadership, culture and systems work to improve and sustain positive health outcomes.
By focusing on social determinants of health, The Humana Foundation aims to promote more healthy days and encourage greater health equity.Social determinants of health – such as postsecondary attainment and sustaining employment, social connectedness, financial asset security and food security - are the conditions under which people are born, grow, live, work and age that impact overall health and well-being.
A message from our CEO
The Humana Foundation shifted to a health equity focus in 2018, strategically focusing on four key social determinants of health: postsecondary attainment and sustaining employment, social connectedness, financial asset security and food security.

The Humana Foundation is committed to our headquarters city, Louisville, Ky. We believe there are important causes we should support to strengthen critical safety net services that make Louisville a more appealing place for all.
“In order to make more of an impact, we plan to collaborate with leaders to address so-called ‘upstream’ social determinants of health—such as employment, income and poverty, food access, and social isolation—so that fewer people will develop chronic health conditions in the first place.”
Bruce D. Broussard,
President and CEO of Humana, and Chair of the Humana Foundation Board of Directors
