St. David’s Foundation Announces Grants Totaling Nearly $27 Million

St. David’s Foundation today announced grants totaling $26,840,492 that are being awarded to over 35 local nonprofit organizations who provide a variety of health care–related services in central Texas.

“With this precedent-setting amount, St. David’s is investing significant funds in addressing some of the most pressing health care needs in our community,” said Earl Maxwell, CEO of St. David’s Foundation.

In grants made each June, the Foundation provides funding to three of its six focus areas: Healthy People, Healthy Minds and Healthy Smiles. Healthy People is focused on funding for safety net clinics that provide a range of medical services to low income members of the community. Within this category alone, grants of over $12 million in funds to 21 different organizations are being made.

Regina Rogoff, CEO of People’s Community Clinic said, “This grant by St. David’s Foundation allows People’s to address the growing need for primary care throughout our area. And with the $10 million investment the Foundation announced last December, People’s will double the number of patients that we can serve.”

Another category receiving grants is the Healthy Minds focus area. Assisting in the key arena of mental health support, grants will total $11,541,488 to over 23 area organizations who provide mental health services to children, adults, and families.

Last but not least, St. David’s Foundation, which operates an award-winning dental program, the largest charitable dental services program in the country, will give $2.5 million in grants to agencies that provide dental care in the community.
