Overview:

HCA Foundation

As the philanthropic arm of HCA, the mission of The HCA Foundation is to promote health and well being, support childhood and youth development, foster the arts in Middle Tennessee and support employees in need nationally through the HCA Hope Fund.

In partnership with the employees of HCA, we seek to accomplish this mission by providing leadership, service and financial support to non-profit organizations effectively engaged in meeting local needs.

Organizations with a well-defined sense of purpose, a demonstrated commitment to maximizing available resources, and a history of delivering quality services and meeting objectives are highly encouraged to apply.

While providing grants is only a part of our service, The HCA Foundation has contributed more than $154M in grants to over 400 organizations and agencies in Middle Tennessee since 1997.

Our Focus Areas

Health and Well Being

Our highest priority is serving as a leading foundation for organizations that promote health and well being. Programs that promote basic health and human needs such as healthcare, housing and food, as well as higher levels of mental and physical wellness can be supported through HCA grants.

Childhood and Youth Development 

Our second priority is supporting organizations engaged in promoting positive growth and development in children and youth. We award grants intended to promote success in school, character development, responsibility, service and leadership.

Art 

Finally, the HCA Foundation will support arts organizations engaged in community outreach and educational programs that uniquely serve children and adults in the community.
