“First 100” Founders Society

Thank you for your generosity that allows us to continue our shared mission.

With heartfelt thanks to our Founders Society Ball Honorees.


Over the decades the generosity of donors, businesses, friends and staff has inspired philanthropy at Methodist Hospitals. From the first twenty physicians who each gave $100 in 1911 to equip the hospital to the inaugural members of the “First 100” Founders Society whose gifts anchored the Methodist Hospitals Foundation, philanthropy has remained central to our cause.

The Methodist Hospitals Foundation is indebted to the leadership benefactors of the “First 100” Founders Society and other contributors whose generous gifts, symbolic of the physicians who gave gifts in 1911, helped advance the work of Methodist Hospitals.
