Community Programs

Our work in the community pairs funding with the expertise and commitment of our people and nearly 70 years of experience. In addition to supporting community programs and services provided by other non-profit organizations and government, Kaiser Permanente provides a number of our own programs that benefit our members and our communities. In addition, we design initiatives to address specific community needs. Below are brief descriptions and links to places you can get more information.
