Advancing Anti-Racist Practices and Policies

To Improve the Lives of All Pinellas County Residents

The Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg believes that race equity will lead to health equity. The organization acts as a connector, a listener, and a source of fuel that accelerates the powerful work already being done to advance equity.

Join the Movement

Led by Community

Listening well means truly hearing the lived experience of those in our community. Community voices underscore what’s not working well, highlight where solutions are already underway, and shape meaningful action.

Focused on Race

Race is the biggest variable in health differences among residents in Pinellas County. Health equity is inseparable from race equity so to build a healthier community, race must be at the forefront of our efforts and solutions.

Why Race Matters

Fueling for Change

The Foundation strategically invests money towards race equity initiatives and fuels community through relationships, connections to support networks, research and data, access to technology, and physical space.

Take Action Together

Driven By Data

Problems are put into perspective by data. Equity data and analysis help illustrate the scale and impact of issues, can point to new connections, and ensure the solutions we invest in are doing the work they promised to do.

A Vision of Equity

Equitable regions—where everyone in the community is able to live a long, healthy life—are more prosperous, and experience stronger, more sustained growth. By investing in equity, Pinellas County helps build a more stable, resilient community that is more likely to experience lasting social and economic success.

2020 Annual Report

Last year split our collective consciousness into “before George Floyd” and after. The motivation for change we felt in the aftermath can be the launching point for a much brighter world, built on a bedrock of race equity. The 2020 Annual Report explores more than 45 community-led initiatives and their impacts, and explains how the Foundation has honed its mission to focus on race equity.
