About Us

Vision

An equitable world where individuals and communities thrive

Mission

To build healthier tomorrows and stronger communities around the world

Our Work

Cerner Charitable Foundation (formerly First Hand) is building healthier tomorrows and stronger communities around the world through individual medical grants and wellness programs, engaging volunteerism, community initiatives and strategic partnerships.

At the heart of our work are three key focus areas: health, home and heroes.

Health

Providing equitable access to health care for children through individual medical grants and health and wellness programming.

Home

Reducing disparities, developing tomorrow’s transformative leaders and improving the communities we call home.

Heroes

Supporting the health care industry and veteran communities through strategic grants and initiatives.

Our work is possible thanks to the generosity of Cerner, its associates and our community partners who give their time, expertise and resources to support our mission.
