Throughout its history, the Pacific Northwest Foundation (PNF) has adapted its focus to meet a variety of changing economic, social and community needs.
From its founding in 1988 through 2001, the Pacific Northwest Foundation was a grant making organization whose purpose was to “inform and respond quickly to unique nonprofit ventures…(focusing) particularly on their efforts to expand and become self-sustaining through broad support from within their respective communities”.
Beginning in 2000, however, our focus shifted significantly and our mission changed. Our current mission is to “research, analyze, publish and develop materials addressing the capacity of complementary healthcare to effectively alleviate physical and emotional maladies”.
PNF believes that quality information is essential for improved health. To that end, we aspire to be a visible, valued, and trusted source of complementary health information. Additionally, we hope to help foster excellence in the field of complementary health sciences. By promoting achievement and leadership amongst professionals we strive to enhance the quality of healthcare, education and research throughout the world.
