The G.R.E.E.N. Foundation
(Gathering Resources to Educate and Empower through Networking)

The G.R.E.E.N. Foundation (TGF) is a community-based nonprofit organization headquarter in Santa Ana, California and our overarching mission is to enhance health and eliminate health disparities affecting diverse Black/African American communities thought the state.

Founded in 2000, TGF remains rooted in its grassroots origins while expanding programs to address crucial health topics. We foster collaborations between dynamic community members and dedicated partner organizations, employing a culturally competent approach grounded in community and faith. Our goal is to educate and raise awareness about healthy preventative and lifestyle choices among Black/African Americans.

TGF’s initiatives cover a spectrum of health issues, including cancer prevention and advocacy, tobacco and vape use, nutrition, as well as race and social justice. TGF prides itself in having developed strong relationships within black/African American communities, working in spaces where they live, worship, and socialize across California. Its aim is to bridge the understanding gap and provide optimal support for those facing adversity.

With a lengthy track record, TGF has successfully initiated close-working relationships with a diverse mix of collaborative partners. Our target audience includes predominantly African Americans and Latino/Hispanic communities. We collaborate with corporate sponsors, academic institutions, community-based healthcare organizations, and faith-based ministries.

Our goal is to enhance community knowledge of health and well-being resources, facilitate access to information, and contribute to the professional development of emerging leaders through community-based learning initiatives.
