Brazosport Health Foundation, the fundraising division of Brazosport Regional Health System, recently received a generous gift from The Fondren Foundation for $200,000. The gift will be used in support of healthcare as part of the $5 million Cornerstone of Caring Capital Campaign assisting with the $15.25M campus upgrade for Brazosport Regional.

Founded in 1948, the Fondren Foundation is a private Houston family foundation established to provide funding in support of community, education, health, social needs and the arts.
