As HCM becomes a for-profit entity, the Foundation will continue its important work in this community as a new, separate entity dedicated to ensuring improved health for Hill Country community members.
Will my donation(s) still be used in the Hill Country community?
Donor funds will remain here in our community to support health and wellness in the community.
