UnitedHealth Group's two philanthropic foundations - UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation and United Health Foundation - are committed to helping people live healthier lives.
UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation gives families somewhere to turn when they need medical assistance. Contributions come from UnitedHealth Group employees, and the generosity of others.
United Health Foundation is passionate about improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of medical care, expanding access to health care services, nurturing a 21st-century health workforce and enhancing community well-being.
