History and Mission

The Hurley Foundation, a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization, was incorporated in 1993. Our primary purpose is to operate for the advancement of medical sciences, education, medical care, and the delivery thereof, for the benefit of the residents of the greater metropolitan Flint area and for the distribution of its funds to such institutions created, operated and maintained to provide such services by the governing body of the City of Flint.

As Flint’s only public hospital, Hurley Medical Center helps to fulfill the primary purpose of the Hurley Foundation. In doing so, Hurley Medical Center currently provides over 66% of this community’s uncompensated health care to citizens with little or no health insurance, at an annual cost of $80 million. Hurley Medical Center receives no city tax dollars and is entirely self-supporting.


Organizations that receive special consideration for a charitable contribution from the Hurley Foundation will be those that are aligned with our primary purpose and promote the health and well-being of the greater Flint metropolitan area. Organizations or activities that do not qualify for direct support include individuals, persons seeking election to specific offices, agencies outside our primary service area, and organizations without 501 (c) (3) tax exempt status. Any grants awarded should not be considered as an indication of future and/or ongoing support.
