Your Impact

Your gifts have changed the lives of Central Texans and the hundreds moving here each day.

Since 1981, more than $526M has been generously given to the Seton Foundations to help transform medical care in Central Texas. These gifts have allowed Seton to be the first to provide the local community with a neonatal intensive care unit, heart transplants, Level I trauma care and a world-class pediatric medical center.

The Seton Foundations raise the funds and awareness necessary to operate and advance Ascension Seton hospitals through Dell Children’s Foundation, Seton Hays Foundation, Seton Williamson Foundation and The Seton Fund, including Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas.

100% of every donation supports the care of Texans.
