Where We Work

We serve a five-county region surrounding the Austin metro area, including Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties.

Rooted in Central Texas

St. David’s Foundation is a place-based, community-focused, equity-driven funder.

The well-being of individuals, families and the community doesn’t start in a hospital or a doctor’s office–it begins at home. Approximately 80% of our health is shaped by community-wide factors, while clinical care accounts for just 20% of our outcomes.

That is why St. David’s Foundation is dedicated to serving and deeply understanding the Central Texas area that we call home.
