Sid W. Richardson established the Foundation in 1947. When substantial income from assets from the late Mr. Richardson’s estate became available in 1962, the Foundation began its current program of distributing major grants. Although his interests reached beyond Texas and his personal contacts were worldwide, he retained his utmost concern for the people of his home state. Throughout the years, the Board of Directors and staff have sought to fulfill his vision.
