The Hope and Heal Fund is an essential partner in building healthy communities across California. Reducing gun violence is a bigger task than any one foundation can tackle on its own. Through the collective efforts of this statewide funder collaborative, we have the best chance to increase well-being in California and decrease gun-related mortality and the trauma it leaves behind.
