What is the purpose of the ETMC Foundation?
Are there geographic boundaries for the Foundation's work?
Are there specific areas of interest for the Foundation?
We are interested in health and education-related programs aimed at achieving sustainable improvements in health outcomes. We are particularly interested in services that focus on under-served and/or at-risk populations in ways that address the unique needs of our citizens.
As echoed by many experts, the ETMC Foundation is also concerned with the all-too-limited behavioral health services available in our communities. As such, we are interested in those programs that support early behavioral health interventions, particularly for adolescents, and programs designed to train and retain exceptional behavioral health professionals.
Are there any disqualifying criteria?
How does an organization begin the process with the Foundation?
Start a conversation with us at any time because we do not have grant cycles or deadlines. If you are a grant-seeker, you must be an organization designated by the Internal Revenue Services as a 501(c)(3) or 170(c).
We also welcome conversations from strategic partners looking to support an aligned vision of improving the health, medical education, and quality of life of East Texans.
Does the Foundation accept donations?
Yes, the Foundation will accept donations and bequests. We do not conduct fundraising events. For more information, contact Dawn Franks at (903) 991-5412.
