Mission and Vision


The mission of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment is to serve as a catalyst for positive change in the health of Wisconsin communities.  The AHW Endowment will seek to generate this change by working closely with our many partners across the state.


By improving health in Wisconsin communities, the AHW Endowment and its partners will work toward the vision of a healthier state.

Guiding Principles


Partnership is essential to achieving the goal of improved health. Sustaining health improvement in communities requires the cohesive work of many actors, while innovation in research and education is largely driven by collaboration by experts from many disciplines.


The AHW Endowment is committed to supporting initiatives working to change systems of care and prevention to improve health. Additionally, the AHW Endowment supports the discovery of new knowledge and best practices in research and education that contribute to the development of better treatments and a more effective health and public health workforce.


The AHW Endowment is committed to stewarding its financial resources so that they benefit Wisconsin residents in perpetuity. Therefore, both the AHW Endowment and its funded partners work diligently to ensure that funds are used efficiently and effectively to pursue the endowment’s mission and vision.
