The Baylor-Methodist Community Fund recently awarded $2.3 million to 46 Houston area charitable organizations, disbursing grants from the $16 million joint fund for the fourth time since its inception.

The fund, created by Baylor College of Medicine and The Methodist Hospital in 2006, promotes health care in the Greater Houston area. Funding priorities are for the medically underserved in the areas of childhood immunization, preventative care, health care access, dental service and behavioral/mental health.

The joint committee, which includes three board members from each institution, has awarded grants this year to organizations such as Catholic Charities, Healthcare for the Homeless and El Centro de Corazon. For more information, and for an application, please see
