Parkview Legacy Foundation is new, so people often ask the questions below. As we grapple with three crises at once—one health (COVID-19), one economic (4.5 million jobs lost and a looming recession of indeterminate length), and one both systemic and structural (racial inequities illuminated by both continued violence against Black people and the disproportionate effect our current crisis is having on Black and LatinX people), new questions have emerged regarding our current and future response. We address those below as well. Please reach out to use with any additional questions you may have.

Q: How is Parkview Legacy Foundation funded?

With the funds endowed to the organization, we are honored to invest back into the local community with a broad scope of ensuring the equitable probability of wellness through social determinants of health.
