Mrs. Paula Harris of Palm Beach is committed to improving the health of all Palm Beach County residents through her donor-advised fund at Palm Healthcare Foundation. The B.J. and Paula Harris Fund of Palm Healthcare Foundation has made 57 grants totaling $1 million since 2004. In 2017, Mrs. Harris made the lead gift of the foundation’s Campaign for Better Brain Health – a million-dollar fundraising campaign aimed at advancing and improving brain health in Palm Beach County.
This year, Mrs. Harris has re-committed to the Campaign for Better Brain Health with a gift of $50,000.
Some of these funds will go to support Palm Beach County's opioid crisis response, mental health first aid trainings and a brain health speaker series which will engage Palm Beach County residents in learning more about the brain and how they can better their brain health every day.
