About Us

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.


Albert and Mamie George established The George Foundation in 1945 with the purposeful intent to give back to the community that blessed their lives.
