From the Heart of Fort Bend County Pioneers
Our legacy is in many ways a reflection of the story of Texas itself. It’s the narrative of rising above challenges together to improve the lives of families in our home community of Fort Bend County. We live and breathe a heartfelt mission created by Texas pioneers with roots in the county that go back to the “Old Three Hundred”. Through cultural, educational, economic, and social support, we focus on building the community we all want to be a part of. Since our founding, we have awarded nearly $270 million in grants to Fort Bend County nonprofit organizations and scholarship recipients to support personal success, enhance community care, and support the causes we all hold dear.
A five-member board of Trustees comprised of highly engaged community leaders provides wisdom and oversight to lead the pursuit of our mission. Additionally, a staff of twenty is dedicated to administration and grantmaking functions of the Foundation, as well as maintenance and care of the Foundation’s large land holdings, including the original homestead of the George family.Learn more
