Donation will allow USofCare to significantly grow its impact

Washington, D.C. — United States of Care (USofCare) today announced author and philanthropist MacKenzie Scott has gifted the nonpartisan nonprofit its largest donation to date. Scott’s $8 million donation affirms USofCare’s position as an organization that will continue to lead in health care by improving equity, access, and centering people in every discussion. 

“USofCare is grateful and proud to receive this $8 million gift from MacKenzie Scott,” said Natalie Davis, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of United States of Care. “It is a testament to USofCare’s prioritization of doing the right work, at the right moment. We are committed to learning from people’s needs, driving commonsense policy change, and partnering with others to ensure our health care system works for everyone. MacKenzie Scott’s generous contribution allows us to redouble our commitment toward building a better, more equitable health care system in the wake of the pandemic. This donation will help set USofCare up to make an even greater impact far into the future, where we can lift up people’s voices louder than ever.”

USofCare was founded four years ago with the mission of ensuring that everyone has access to quality, affordable health care regardless of health status, social need or income. For the last two years, USofCare has spoken with thousands of people in every state about their feelings and experiences with our current health care system, and advocating for the changes that people want. That listening work continues as USofCare maintains its commitment to center people in conversations about health care policy. 

USofCare is more than just a think tank — it also takes action and propels change. Armed with the  health care insights of real people, USofCare drives state and federal policy change that reflects people’s needs, and builds new policies where needed. In particular, USofCare pursues solutions that will create an equitable health care system that is affordable, dependable, personalized, and understandable. Scott’s donation carries specific appreciation for the organization’s work toward a health system that equitably serves everyone, and the organization will determine how best to use the gift to make a meaningful, sustained difference in people-centered health care research and policy change.
