About the Seton Foundations
The Seton Healthcare Family has four fundraising foundations that support its many ministries, projects and programs throughout Central Texas: Children’s Medical Center Foundation of Central Texas, Seton Hays Foundation, Seton Williamson Foundation and The Seton Fund.
Through the extraordinary generosity of donors and a culture of philanthropy nurtured by trustees, volunteers and staff, Seton has raised more than $300 million over the years to support the Daughters of Charity healthcare ministry across Central Texas, from the region’s first heart transplant to a world-class pediatric medical center.
From the founding of the Daughters of Charity in 1633 in Paris, France, to their roots in Central Texas with the founding of the Seton Infirmary in 1902, the Daughters have partnered with the communities in which they serve to care for the poor and vulnerable and provide exceptional care to those in need.
St. Vincent de Paul, co-founder of the Daughters of Charity, said that our efforts should “… connect the healthy to the sick, the educated to the uninstructed, the skilled to the unskilled, the influential to the deprived, the powerful to the weak.” His words from nearly four hundred years ago are reflected — every day — in our community’s generous philanthropic support of Seton.
