RW Johnson Foundation: Understanding and Supporting Anchor Businesses to Build a Culture of Health

This call for proposals will focus on supporting empirical research to understand the ways that for-profit anchors advance health and well-being in the communities where they are located. Funded studies are expected to include rigorous empirical research that will inform the business case for why and how more companies serve as anchor institutions in their immediate surrounding geographies. Studies will also inform future RWJF strategies to motivate companies to act in a way that promotes health and well-being.
