About Us

Our Mission:

To create healthier lives for all Central Texans by addressing the region’s top health challenges.


Good health is the starting point for everything important in life – family, career, learning, loving and leisure. We must always aim for the most ambitious goals when it comes to health.

In support of our goal, the Foundation invests to solve the most pressing health challenges across our entire community, especially for those traditionally left out – the underserved and uninsured.

Through a unique partnership with St. David’s HealthCare, we invest over $75 million each year back into our five county service area in Central Texas, made up of Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties, making us one of the largest health foundations in the country. Our investments have helped improve health prospects for hundreds of thousands of Central Texans. But we have much more to do to create the healthiest community in the world. We embrace our responsibility to make it possible.

We believe that healthy living is a doctor you can depend on, a safe place for kids to play, and proactive care strategies for seniors. We make grants to innovative organizations ready to solve problems and bring good health into reach for all our neighbors.
