The mission of the Harris County Hospital District Foundation is to enhance the broad healthcare mission of the Harris Health System by soliciting and raising funds for programs, and increasing the community’s awareness of the Harris Health System.
The Harris County Hospital District Foundation, a charitable 501(c)3 organization, raises funds and awareness in support of Harris Health System. Established in 1992, the HCHD Foundation has raised in excess of $54 million for the Harris Health System Programs and Services. The HCHD Foundation has funded Harris Health’s pilot programs, facility enhancements, and incentive programs to name a few.
2nd Capital Campaign: Incredible Outcomes
