The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health has been promoting mental health in Texas since 1940, when the children of former Texas Governor James S. Hogg established the foundation with proceeds from their beloved brother Will’s estate. Will’s sister, Miss Ima Hogg, later established a separate endowment at the foundation dedicated to providing mental health services for children, youth and their families in Houston and Harris County.
Over the years, the Hogg Foundation has awarded millions of dollars in grants and scholarships to fulfill this mission and continue the Hogg family’s legacy of public service in Texas. Today, the Hogg Foundation focuses on key strategic areas with the greatest potential to benefit mental health in Texas and awards grants through a competitive proposal process. The foundation funds mental health services, scholarships, academic research, policy work, conferences and public education and outreach.
The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health advances mental wellness for the people of Texas as an impactful grantmaker and catalyst for change.
The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health will invest our knowledge and resources to move Texas forward in achieving mental wellness.
