The George Foundation is a place-based funder dedicated to supporting organizations serving Fort Bend County. Our funding map populates a handful of organizations outside of Fort Bend due to the location of the nonprofits’ headquarters, but all investments are directed to serve Fort Bend residents.

The George Foundation proactively shares commissioned studies and work completed by our nonprofit and philanthropic partners to help tell the story of the challenges, triumphs, and lessons learned within our community. We regularly update this page with new documents as they become available, so please check back in the future.
