Methodist Richardson Medical Center Foundation

The Methodist Richardson Medical Center Foundation’s mission is to raise, manage, and distribute funds to assist Methodist Richardson Medical Center (MRMC) in acquiring state-of the-art technology, attracting excellent medical staff, and supporting vital hospital programs. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $25 million to assist in funding cutting-edge projects and programs that support the Medical Center and the Cancer Center.

The Foundation is the sole fundraising arm of the hospital and is a stand-alone 501(c)3. All funds raised by the Foundation stay in Richardson.
