GrassROOTS Community Foundation

GrassROOTS Community Foundation (GCF) is a public health and social action organization. We invest in our community members’ collective well-being, so that they can use their health and energy to transform themselves, their families and communities. We support, develop and scale health and wellness programs for women and girls, particularly those who are impoverished. We also advocate for policies and practices that reduce disparities and foster equity.


  • Engage and unite for community health.
  • Fund and provide technical support to community health initiatives.
  • Develop models that are low-cost, high-impact, evidence driven and context specific.
  • Work with girls, their families and community members to create health solutions.
  • Investigate and collect data to inform policy and practice.
  • Advocate for health programs and policies that benefit women and girls.

We are working to create a world where ALL girls grow up to be healthy women.

GrassROOTS was cofounded by sociologist Dr. Janice Johnson Dias and Grammy award winner and lead MC of The Roots, Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter.
