We invite you to join us and give generously. Your support will enable Houston Methodist to advance care in our community and beyond. Together, we are creating a world for better health — both today and into the future.


Giving Societies
The Houston Methodist Hospital Foundation has a number of giving societies that are designed to support a specific area of medicine or to further Houston Methodist’s goal of providing patients in Houston and beyond a quality of health care unmatched by others. Learn more about our giving societies and how you can participate:


Translational Research Initiative
Despite generations of effort, the “translation” of novel medical discoveries from the laboratory into the patient care arena remains elusive and cumbersome, taking up to 20 years and billions of dollars. The Houston Methodist Research Institute has created the Translational Research Initiative, or TRI, as a unique opportunity to make a difference now, by applying the power of philanthropy to medical innovations with the most potential to transform health.


Gifts of Gratitude
We invite you to ensure a legacy of health for future generations by donating, advocating and volunteering through the Gifts of Gratitude program. You can make a gift in honor of a physician, nurse or other caregiver who played a special role in your care. Tell your story about how Houston Methodist’s staff had a positive impact upon your care. Join our mailing list to learn more about Houston Methodist news and events. Volunteer your time at one of our hospital locations.

Planned Giving

When you include Houston Methodist in your estate plan, your generosity empowers us to provide outstanding care and patient experiences. Thank you for ensuring that Houston Methodist can impact those we serve well into the future.
