ChangeLab Solutions is honored to have the support and partnership of many esteemed organizations. Our work began in 1997 when we provided key leadership for the tobacco control movement in California. Since then, we have worked in nearly all of the 58 California counties and most of the 482 cities and towns. Our work in land use and transportation planning, childhood obesity prevention, tobacco control, food systems, school environments, and more has led us to work across all 50 states in rural, urban and suburban communities.

We would like to recognize the government agencies, foundations, academic institutions, community-based organizations and private entities who partner with us to help promote nationwide. Below is a representative sample of the ever-growing list of funders and partners who make our work possible. Thank you for supporting our efforts to promote the common good by making healthier choices easier for everyone.
