VB Legacy Foundation

The Valley Baptist Medical Foundation was formed in 1976 with a focused mission to raise funds to support Valley Baptist Medical Center.


For more than 30 years, the foundation did just that, successfully raising millions of dollars for the hospitals through events, capital campaigns, grants writing and planned giving programs. The foundation’s support directly enhanced the infrastructure of our hospitals and educational offerings for employees and the community as a whole.  

On Sept. 1, 2011, Valley Baptist and Vanguard Health Systems entered into a joint venture that shifted the focus of support from the foundation to directly address the healthcare-related needs of our community. The foundation is now known as the Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation. For more information on the Foundation, click here.

Our Mission

The Legacy Foundation, in the tradition of Valley Baptist Health System, invests in and serves as a catalyst for ideas, partnerships, medical education, research and programs that improve the health and quality of life in South Texas. The Foundation defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, spiritual and social well being.

As a faith-based, regional health system, Valley Baptist has always provided high-quality health care and medical education throughout South Texas, guided by the healing and teaching ministry of Jesus Christ. That’s Valley Baptist Care.

We look forward to working with the many great organizations in our area that already focus on the healthcare needs of the people in our community, as well as collaborating with new and existing organizations to create sustainable change in the healthcare areas most needed in the Valley.
