Welcome to Texas Health Resources Foundation’s annual report. As always, we are overwhelmed, yet not surprised, by the generosity of our donors and 2017 was a wonderful reflection of this.
Our theme for this year’s report is “You Make the Difference” and it could not be more appropriately titled. You will see through our donor profiles and videos, featuring recipients directly touched by donors’ gifts, how you are truly making the difference in the lives of others.
This year, we will continue to focus our fundraising on the many initiatives you will read about in this year’s report: community outreach, support and education programs like Nursing Excellence, Wellness for Life® and SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner), and we will partner with our wholly-owned hospitals and system leadership to identify special projects in need of philanthropic support. I am also excited to share with you the launch of a new campaign in 2018 that, together with partners, will help infuse funding for Community Health Impact needs across North Texas. More to come on that throughout 2018.
There’s much to be done in this year ahead and we thank our loyal supporters for their giving to make the difference in our communities.
