Our Approach

Our history suggests that when we think about grant-making there exists a range of models that describe different approaches. These models include everything from being "charitable bankers", to being totally strategic organizations, trying to create value and population driven health care related service improvement. At one end of the range, money is "given out", hoping that it will do good at the individual or group level. At the other end, which is where we see Methodist Health System Foundation, Inc. (MHSFI), we're investors and collaborators in creating healthier communities, setting our sights on identifying and solving systemic healthcare related problems. We are able to use our unique set of resources...people, dollars, reputation, data, and intellect...to create transformative change and to do it in a way that builds on evidence and lessons learned from our efforts to improve the quality of people's lives.-making activities are grounded in the principles of: integrity, transparency, disclosure, performance, and accountability.

As is our tradition, MHSFI’s grantmaking activities are grounded in the principles of: integrity, transparency, disclosure, performance, and accountability.
