Become a philanthropist

Look forward by
giving back

Having financially supported more than 130 Southeast nonprofits in 2021 alone, we are connecting donors with the causes they care about. Join the mission of the foundation to look forward to a community where generosity is practiced by all people, but starts with the individual.
Whether starting a fund, joining a giving circle or giving monthly on your own accord, your investment grows regardless of the size. We provide highly personalized service tailored to your charitable and financial interests.

Support the quality of life in Southeast Texas

The nonprofits we support address a wide range
of interests and ever-changing needs throughout Hardin, Jefferson and Orange counties. Your
gift – and all future earnings from your gift – is
a permanent source of community capital,
helping do good work forever.
GIVE BACK
We’ve answered the questions, “Where is the most need,” “Where do I give first,” and “How do
I make my money go the furthest?”
Your giving grows here.

"I always thought a philanthropist was a person who had mega bucks, and did grand and glorious things with their money. Our initial gift was not all that large — we knew by combining our gifts with others, it had a chance to grow larger, which it has."
Initial fund of $25,000 is now valued at $107,371.45
