Saint Luke's Foundation's board of trustees approved about $4.4 million in grants to 25 organizations in the foundation's third round of grants for 2018, the board announced Wednesday, Jan. 9.

The investments align with the foundation's mission to achieve health equity by addressing social determinants of health such as educational attainment, financial stability, healthy eating and active living, safe and affordable housing, social connections and the strengthening of the neighborhoods surrounding the former Saint Luke's hospital, according to a news release.

"We are so pleased with the overwhelming interest from organizations and critical partners spearheading efforts to address social determinants of health," said Anne C. Goodman, Saint Luke's Foundation president and CEO, in a prepared statement. "It is invigorating to see that there is growing recognition across the community that health is more than just the absence of disease and that there are myriad and complex factors that impact our ability to ensure health equity".
