The Patient Benefit Foundation (PBF) was founded in 2014 because there was a clear need that had been left unaddressed by other charitable organizations. Emergent and catastrophic surgeries were being assisted by multiple charities, but no one was reaching the patient in need of elective surgeries that were necessary to prevent future complications. The Patient Benefit Foundation began taking shape in 2015 when the infrastructure necessary to move the organization forward was put into place.
By 2016, board members and organizational activities had been finalized, informational materials had been developed, and the Patient Benefit Foundation began recruiting surgeons and facilities to help with the cause. A gala introducing the Patient Benefit Foundation was held to formally introduce the organization to Houston, Texas, and the surrounding communities.
In 2017, the organization began performing surgeries with several participating surgeons and many medical facilities. By the end of the year, the Patient Benefit Foundation saved patients an estimated $220,000, and no patient was required to contribute financially.
As the foundation continues in 2019, news of the organization and its work continues to spread, but we need your help. Please consider donating today, so that we may continue assisting those in need. The Patient Benefit Foundation is a charitable organization recognized to be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to PBF are tax-deductible.
