Our Response to COVID-19

St. David’s Foundation created a $10 million COVID-19 Recovery Fund in April 2020 to support nonprofit organizations and public entities serving on the front lines of the pandemic.

Based on community feedback, listening to and learning from local leaders and synthesizing data from trusted resources, four funding priorities were determined for Phase II: behavioral health and emotional well-being, basic needs, childcare and access to health care services. Funding will be prioritized for populations who are inequitably bearing the brunt of this crisis including people of color; people living with disabilities; people experiencing homelessness; refugees; immigrants; and LGBTQ communities.

Applications for Phase II of the COVID-19 Recovery Fund closed on August 13th at 3:00 p.m. CST. Please continue to check this page for updates.

Our Mission

The mission of St. David’s Foundation is to help improve the health and well-being of our most underserved Central Texas neighbors in our five-county area using our resources to reduce health inequity, increase access to healthcare focusing on the whole person through integrated care, and support the communities we serve in taking an active role in their health and healthcare needs. As one of the largest health foundations in the country, St. David’s Foundation invests over $75 million each year.

Strategic Priorities

We believe all Central Texans should have the opportunity to achieve optimal health. Health equity is achieved when you can no longer predict how healthy a person is – or will be – by their race, ethnicity, gender or zip code.
