We are thrilled to share that Equalize Health CEO, Krista Donaldson, has been selected as a 2021 Elevate Prize winner.

Krista and the other winners were selected from a diverse pool of nearly 1,300 global applicants championing the most urgent and complex causes such as health, education, climate change, and equality.

“I am honored to be recognized as one of the changemakers who have won the 2021 Elevate Prize. I share this award with my colleagues, the many tireless healthcare workers, and our supporters and partners who enabled Equalize Health’s impact. This recognition could not have come at a more critical time. As a global society, we have universally felt the significance of access to quality healthcare, and yet this still largely depends on where you live - particularly for women and children. Without health, everything suffers.
Thank you to the Elevate Prize team and judges. With their support and network, we can multiply our impact and build a health care system that puts the wellbeing of mothers and newborns at its center. Together, we can save the lives of millions of people, and end the suffering and loss that comes with preventable deaths.” - Krista Donaldson, CEO, Equalize Health

“When I started this journey, I envisioned a type of philanthropy more suited to the resources we can deliver today – a more entrepreneurial approach that goes beyond just monetary resources, and provides comprehensive assistance to scale these worthy causes. With all that we’ll offer this cohort through the foundation over the next two years, I’m excited to help shepherd these heroes on their own journeys to changing the world – and awakening the hero in all of us.” - Joseph Dietch, Founder of the Elevate Prize
