Mount Zion Health Fund reflects the Jewish values and legacy of Mount Zion Hospital by supporting programs and research that improve the physical, emotional and spiritual health of vulnerable populations in San Francisco.
Mount Zion Health Fund is committed to advancing the health of the underserved who have limited access to quality health services because of inability to pay, health status, race, religion, language, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Mount Zion Health Fund (MZHF), a supporting foundation of the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund, traces its origins to the founding of Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco at the end of the 19th century. Mount Zion Hospital was established to serve both the Jewish and broader communities.
Intertwined with the history of Mount Zion Hospital and Medical Center, Mount Zion Health Fund’s grantmaking focus has evolved over the years since the Fund was originally established.
Mount Zion Health Fund accepts proposals on an annual basis within its funding foci:
1. Jewish Legacy Awards
2. Community + UCSF Mount Zion Awards
3. UCSF Mount Zion Campus-based Awards.
