Not Just Healthcare
What is Health?
Rooted in faith and active in hope, the Episcopal Health Foundation believes ALL Texans deserve to live a healthy life… especially the poor and those with the least resources.
Strengthening the health system for 11 million Texans
In 2020, the Episcopal Health Foundation will continue work aligned with our five-year strategic plan, which you are encouraged to read before applying for a grant.
Our research division shares its expertise to help communities better understand their unique health needs and challenges.
EHF encourages congregations to build relationships, to teach new skills and to help change the mindsets of those in need through community participation.
EHF’s Grant Guidance for 2020 expresses our core beliefs and explains the commitment of our philanthropic giving to outcomes-focused approaches to improve health, not just healthcare in Texas.
