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 HCHD 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.
