The Foundation's five-year strategic plan identifies two priorities for grant making, policy and capacity building efforts: access to health care and quality of health care.
The REACH Foundation’s 2011-2015 strategic plan specifies two large priority areas, or targeted outcomes, that guide the foundation’s grant making, public policy and advocacy, and capacity building efforts:
These targeted outcomes are linked to a set of strategies (see below) that are part of the foundation’s theory of change, which describes how our organization will seek to improve health care and health outcomes in our six-county service area. The theory of change outlines key strategies, indicators of access and quality, and the long-term outcomes we will seek to achieve and measure. It also serves as a tool for assessing grant proposals and funding opportunities.

For the two targeted outcomes, we have identified strategies to increase access and quality of health services.
I. Strategies to Increase Access to Health Care Services and Coverage
II. Strategies to Improve the Quality of Health Care Services
The Foundation continues its long-standing commitment to funding oral health, mental health and safety net health services, but there are some programs REACH no longer supports in order to allocate our limited resources where we can have the greatest impact.
