Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott has donated $20 million to Episcopal Health Foundation.
Since its creation in 2013, Episcopal Health Foundation (EHF) has grown from a startup to a $1.4 billion philanthropic organization. The foundation has invested more than $450 million in grants, research projects, and other efforts to improve health in Texas.
In 2015, EHF became fully operational with divisions for research, grantmaking, and congregational and community engagement. The Foundation has become a leading advocate for advancing community health as a top issue within the health care debate. Beyond its efforts to make health care more affordable and accessible, Episcopal Health Foundation focuses on addressing underlying factors to health like income, diet, family support, housing, and environment.
Scott’s donation will be used to bolster the effectiveness of Episcoal Health Foundation’s ongoing grantmaking, research and community engagement programs. This donation is part of the more than $12 billion in grants she has announced in the last three years.
