What We Do

The Hogg Foundation works to transform how communities promote mental health in everyday life.

“When we build let us build forever. Let it not be for the present delight or for the present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for.” — Will Hogg

Our Approach to Philanthropy

Health is not solely an individual responsibility, but is also a product of community conditions. While mental health diagnoses are varied and complex, many poor outcomes stem from environmental factors like housing stability, neighborhood infrastructure, and conditions at home, work and school.

The Hogg Foundation works with communities to strengthen conditions that support mental health and eliminate conditions that harm mental health.

Working collaboratively, we can change the patterns of mental illness across Texas, especially for marginalized populations.
