Working at St. David’s Foundation
We are fueled by a commitment to improve the health and well-being of our most underserved Central Texas neighbors; it is what inspires us every day. We lead with research and data and are driven by the stories behind the numbers to advance health equity. Our dedication to building deep-seated and impactful relationships is fostered by truly listening, engaging with people and communities as active partners and sharing what we learn.
From strategic grantmaking, evaluation and learning to mobile dental clinics and health care scholarship support—and all the important efforts that allow our programs to come to life—we believe real change comes from valuing diverse perspectives. We are steadfast in adopting evidence-based models and proven research while respecting viewpoints different from our own so new ideas can flourish. This commitment to seeking continuous improvement sparks positive change internally and across the five-county region we serve.

- Collaboration with others to exchange knowledge, ideas and resources;
- Community by building relationships and engaging others;
