The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), located in Princeton, NJ, is the largest philanthropy in America dedicated solely to health. Since 1972 we have worked to help people, their families, and their communities be as healthy as possible—no matter what their physical, economic, or demographic challenges may be. We do this by providing funding, assistance, and research for projects and programs targeting some of the most pressing health issues in our nation. RWJF has committed itself to a vision of working alongside others to build a Culture of Health where everyone has a fair and just opportunity for health and well-being. Our goal is to help families and communities find ways to make the healthy choice the easy choice, and keep well-being front and center for generations to come. Building a Culture of Health will take unprecedented collaboration -- everyone has a role to play. No individual, organization, or government program can alter the course of America’s health alone. We must all work together. It demands recognition that health is greatly influenced by complex social factors—education, neighborhoods, transportation, income, and faith—in addition to health care.
Building a Culture of Health is a bold shift that relies on increasing equity - everyone must have the opportunity to live a healthier life. But for too many of us, the prospects for good health are limited by where we live, how much money we make, or discrimination we face because of who we are. Health equity means we all have the basics to be healthier. We cannot build a Culture of Health without it.
Diversity, inclusion, and collaboration are fundamental principles at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Our staff’s wide range of experiences, passions, and perspectives enriches our work and strengthens our ability to address our nation’s most pressing health issues. We offer a collaborative, collegial, and creative work environment. With a career at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation you will make a difference.
