Health Initiatives Foundation, Inc. (HIFI) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501C3 non-profit corporation.  HIFI was originally incorporated in Maryland in 1995 by Dr. Michael McDonald (HIFI’s current executive director), C.

Taylor (former COO of the Howard Hughes Foundation).  HIFI is used as the 501C3 non-profit organization for charitable gifts and donations focused on health, human security, emergency management, and development projects in the United States and internationally.  HIFI runs the Race to Resilience public / private consortium and replicates the Resilience Systems in high severity disasters through the Race to Resilience public / private consortium.
