Puget Sound at Heart

Imagine a Puget Sound where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your freeway exit does not determine your health. Currently the average person in Auburn lives just 73 years, while someone on Mercer Island can expect to live 15 years longer. That’s not right. We’re fighting for fundamental changes in our community so that no matter where you live in the Puget Sound, you can make healthy choices.

Our Priorities in the Community


Making an Impact in Washington

The American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health for all, proudly honors the legacy of the late Bernard J. Tyson (1959-2019)—chairman and chief executive officer of Kaiser Permanente and long-standing member of the American Heart Association’s national board of directors—by financially investing in organizations addressing health inequities throughout the Puget Sound through the organization’s Bernard J. Tyson Impact Fund

Jeff Bezos provided a financial gift to launch the Bernard J. Tyson Impact Fund in the Puget Sound region, where the American Heart Association will invest into community-led, sustainable solutions that create housing equity or meet the growing food insecurity challenge within the area.
