At the Horizon Foundation, we are leading community change so that everyone in Howard County can live a longer, better life. As the largest independent health philanthropy in Maryland, we run innovative initiatives, collaborative partnerships, strategic grantmaking and thoughtful advocacy – all geared toward improving health and wellness in our community.
When you join the Horizon Foundation, you are joining a team that is committed to addressing serious health challenges in Howard County. Our track record shows we are making progress. For example, we successfully piloted fresh fruit and salad bars and new school lunch menus, leading to the school system’s expansion of the changes to all 41 elementary schools. We helped launch a county bikeshare program, one of just a few suburban systems in the nation. And we led a community-wide initiative to change the norms around sugary drinks that resulted in a 20 percent drop in soda sales.
