Brandywine Health Foundation Rebrands; Nonprofit’s New Name an ‘Evolution of Actively Living Out Its Values’

Since 2001, the Brandywine Health Foundation has advanced optimal health, responded to the ever-changing needs of the Greater Coatesville community through partnerships, distributed nearly $19 million in grants and scholarships, and launched impactful programs and initiatives.

The community has benefited over the last 20 years, yet there are significant challenges that remain through the persistent health disparities and racial inequities exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As it looks toward the future, the Brandywine Health Foundation has changed its name to The Alliance for Health Equity and its brand to Strengthening Communities.

The nonprofit’s mission remains the same, but its new name will convey how it will carry out its mission into the future — by tackling the complex and often uncomfortable and inequitable health, economic, and social issues that prevent people from attaining optimal health and prosperity.

The Alliance for HealthEquity’s new brand is driven by this profound examination of who the foundation is and what it does. The new logo and visual identity are inspired by its guiding principles and values — namely its commitment to centering equity in all efforts with the goal of deeper social impact, as well as transforming the community’s overall health.

“The entrenched challenges, stemmed from decades of inequities across multiple systems, intended to support basic needs, can be seen and heard locally, regionally, and nationally,” said Vanessa B. Briggs, President and CEO of The Alliance for HealthEquity. “The Alliance for Health Equity is an evolution of the Brandywine Health Foundation actively living out its values — a commitment to equity for all.”  

The Alliance for Health Equity hopes other individuals, foundations, and corporate partners become part of its family in supporting its mission to advance community health.

As The Alliance for Health Equity celebrates its rebrand, it is offering free pies for the Thanksgiving season. Its “Bake the World a Better Place” pie giveaway will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 23 from 3-7 PM.
