Support for NYC HANES is primarily provided by the de Beaumont Foundation with additional support from Robin Hood, the New York State Health Foundation, Quest Diagnostics, and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. NYC HANES is part of a larger project supported by the de Beaumont Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Robin Hood, and the New York State Health Foundation.
The de Beaumont Foundation believes that a strong public health system is essential. Through strategic and engaged grant making, the Foundation is working to transform the practice of public health by building the capacity and stature of the public health workforce, encouraging collaboration between health departments, and improving communication with the public, especially through the use of technology.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation focuses on the pressing health and health care issues facing our country. As the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health and health care, the Foundation works with a diverse group of organizations and individuals to identify solutions and achieve comprehensive, measurable, and timely change.

Robin Hood is New York's largest poverty-fighting organization, and since 1988 has focused on finding, funding, and creating programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York's poorest neighborhoods. Over its 25 year history, Robin Hood has distributed more than $1.25 billion to hundreds of New York City-based soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, job training programs, and other vital services that give New York's neediest citizens the tools they need to build better lives for themselves and their families. In addition, Robin Hood's board of directors pays all administrative, fundraising and evaluation costs, so 100% of donations go directly to organizations helping New Yorkers in need.
The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) is a private, statewide foundation dedicated to improving the health of all New Yorkers, especially the most vulnerable. Today, NYSHealth concentrates its work in three strategic priority areas: expanding health care coverage, improving diabetes prevention, and advancing primary care. The Foundation is committed to making grants; informing health care policy and practice; spreading effective programs to improve the health system; serving as a neutral convener of health leaders across the State; and providing technical assistance to our grantees and partners.
