Commonwealth Fund

The Commonwealth Fund was established in 1918 with the broad charge to enhance the common good. Its founder, Anna M. Harkness, is among the first women to start a private foundation. For more than 100 years, the Commonwealth Fund has worked toward the vision of a higher-performing U.S. health care system – one that achieves better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency, particularly for society’s most vulnerable.

As an independent, nonpartisan organization, the foundation has aimed to help develop common ground from which policymakers across the political spectrum can lead the nation toward a health care system that assures its residents have long, healthy, and productive lives. We do this by supporting independent research on health care and policy issues through our grantmaking activities.
