Our Mission

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 granted in excess of $106 million for the Harris Health System Programs and Services and the Harris County Community. The HCHD Foundation has granted funds in support of Harris Health’s pilot programs, facility enhancements, and incentive programs to name a few.  

HCHD Foundation Events

The Harris County Hospital District Foundation has created and sponsored over the years a number of annual events in the community with the goal of raising community awareness about the HCHD Foundation, Harris Health System, the patients served while, at the same time, raising funds targeted for a specific Harris Health System program or service.
