Designated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit hospital by the IRS, St. David’s Foundation is required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and adopt an implementation Plan (IP) at least once every three years, per requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The Foundation collaborates with other healthcare providers in the region to conduct CHNAs, and plans to utilize the 2022 CHNA Process to provide data to assist in updating the Foundation’s Strategic Plan, which will cover the period January 2023 – December 2025. St. David’s Foundation is seeking a consultant who can provide support on the CHNA portion of the IRS requirement. The Assessments will be made publicly available via our website, and we intend to use the findings for various community engagement and education opportunities.

Request for Proposals: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Expertise
Issue Date: Friday, December 4, 2020
Submission Deadline: Monday, January 11, 2021 by 5 p.m. CST
As the largest health philanthropy in Central Texas, St. David’s Foundation is seeking to strengthen its role in advancing health equity within our region – while leading cultural change in the philanthropic community. We define health equity as everyone having a fair and just opportunity to live as healthfully as possible regardless of demographics or where people live, work, worship, or play. This includes removing obstacles to good health such as poverty, food insecurity, inadequate education and housing, and systemic racism. The Foundation has embraced and begun to prioritize health equity in our refined strategy, core values, and practices.
The Foundation is now looking to develop a shared understanding of how to operationalize concepts such as “equity,” “diversity,” and “inclusion” within and across all Foundation teams. To create cultural change such that an EDI* perspective is embedded within all of our practices, policies, and programs, the Foundation seeks to engage an external expert or experts to help us continue this journey.

*We prioritize “equity” and list it first (vs. the more mainstream “DEI”) because our ultimate goal is to achieve equity. We believe we cannot achieve diversity or inclusion if we do not achieve equity.
