Greehey Family Foundation’s $5 million gift completes Campaign for the Future of Health

At the 2013 President’s Gala on Sept. 7, William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, president of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, announced a $5 million gift from the Greehey Family Foundation to the university. The new donation pushes the Health Science Center’s Campaign for the Future of Health over its goal of $500 million.

The campaign fund was created to enhance the university’s research infrastructure by building the South Texas Research Facility and establishing and sustaining the President’s Excellence Fund, which supports signature research programs and the recruitment and retention of world-class faculty.

Champion for good health

Bill Greehey, chairman of NuStar Energy, L.P, and NuStar GP Holdings, LLC, and his Greehey Family Foundation launched the momentum for the capital campaign in 2007 with a $25 million gift that supports:

  • UT Health Science Center scientists at the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute;
  • Student scholarships;
  • Community outreach programs; and
  • Faculty recruitment and retention.

“We needed a champion back then, and we found one in Bill Greehey. It’s only fitting that our campaign culminates with a major gift from him,” said William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, president of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio.

Gala raises $600,000

The gala, with its record 1,500 attendance of community and academic leaders and students, also raised $600,000 that will be used to establish two funds:

  • The Greehey Family Foundation Endowment for Community Service will support faculty and student programs directly benefitting the health and well-being of the community.
  • The Greehey Family Foundation Fund for Community Service and Patient Needs will support the university’s mission of service by addressing patients’ urgent medical needs.
