In the broadest terms, the Foundation’s goal for grant making is to provide funding for charitable organizations to enhance or support efforts to improve the quality of life for present and future generations of the people of the greater Richmond, Texas area. To achieve this goal, the Directors have chosen areas of emphasis which include education, historical, animals and wildlife, religious organizations, and human services. The Directors have also chosen to advance the quality, availability, and accessibility of mental health care, including substance abuse, in Fort Bend County with a primary focus on the greater Richmond, Texas area, and to support research and education in the areas of mental health and spirituality within the State of Texas.

Under most circumstances, the Foundation does not consider grants to individuals, grants for fine or performing arts, underwriting or sponsorship of fund-raising events, loans, organizations that re-grant, or fraternal or political organizations.  In most cases, the minimum amount to be funded would be $10,000.
