Children’s Health Fund

Welcome to the
2022 - 2023 Children's Health Fund

Dedicated Funds for Children's Health Issues in Harris County

The Harris County Hospital District Foundation manages a permanent endowment devoted to children’s health issues in Harris County. The endowment is a tri-party agreement between Harris County, the Harris Health System, and the Harris County Hospital District Foundation.

The proceeds of this endowment support integrated health projects for children who are not eligible for other similar services and who are at the highest risk in Harris County and Harris Health System.

Please note: Proposals can be for one or two-year projects.  After year two of receiving funds, the applicant may not submit a proposal for a third year.  The applicant is required to skip a year, and may apply the following year proposing a new project/program.

I wanted to share a recent video sent to me by our wellness Champion teacher Carlos Quinteros at Sharpstown High School.  Your investment in the school continues as Carlos took up the mantle to execute much of the HealthCorps programming.  

Thank you for giving the students at Sharpstown critical two years of the programming so we could ensure sustainability there.  Your funding made the difference!
