1 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 30, 2014 CONTACT: Kristy Ozmun Public Relations St. David s Foundation grants $16.6 million to nonprofits providing primary care, mental health care, and dental care Grant total is single largest amount the Foundation has distributed to date AUSTIN St. David s Foundation announced today that it has approved $16.6 million in grants to benefit almost 30 local organizations that provide critical health care services to Central Texans. This is the first round of biannual grants for 2014 to be distributed by the Foundation, the second of which will take place in December. We are pleased to note that Foundation grants announced today will go largely to clinics that are on the front lines of health care delivery for the underserved in our community, including primary care, mental health care, and for dental care, said Earl Maxwell, CEO of the Foundation. Today s announced grants include: $8 million devoted to improving access to health care for low-income families and children (Healthy People), including a grant to the University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing Family Wellness Center and Children s Wellness Center to provide support for public health nurses and health education outreach. $5.1 million to support mental health programs (Healthy Minds), including a first-time grant to Austin Children s Services for the Strong Start Early Intervention program. $1.3 million to provide free dental services to children and families (Healthy Smiles), including a grant to AIDS Services of Austin for clinic expansion and programs at the Jack Sansing Dental Clinic. Additionally, two focus areas will be receiving half of their requested funding now, and the balance in December, to accommodate a change in grant cycle timing. They are as follows: More than $400,000 to support health and wellness through improved nutrition and physical activity (Healthy Living). $1.6 million to fund educational opportunities in health care research and health careers (Healthy Futures). A complete listing of the grants by category is provided on page 3. - more 1

2 As part of the Foundation s biannual grants approval process, Lone Star Circle of Care filed a grant request in January 2014, prior to undergoing reorganization. Lone Star is an agency in transition, and funding will be considered by the Foundation on a month-to-month basis through the end of the year, said Maxwell. We are staying in close communication with LSCC leadership, and we remain committed to preserving patient services at LSCC clinics. The Foundation previously announced a $1 million grant to LSCC to provide short-term funding assistance. Interviews with grant recipients and Foundation leadership may be arranged by contacting Kristy Ozmun Public Relations. (See charts on next page.) -more- 2
