Founded in 1991, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation is the non-profit funding partner of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Overseen by the Board of Trustees and administered by 12 staff members, TPWF funds projects supported by sound science with measurable results and meaningful impact. Private funding, secured by TPWF through gifts and grants, is addressing critical conservation needs; improving and expanding natural areas, state parks, and wildlife management areas; and enhancing opportunities to enjoy and appreciate the abundance of natural beauty throughout Texas. Since its inception, TPWF has raised over $100 million to ensure every Texan, today and in the future, can enjoy, explore, and be inspired by the incredible wild things and wild places in Texas.

The Brady M. Boyd Scholarship Fund advances conservation through education for graduating high school students and current college students. The fund was established to honor the memory of Brady M. Boyd (1991-2014), an avid hunter and angler. A life-long outdoorsman, Brady would be proud to know that others will continue to live out his love and enjoyment of the outdoors for years to come through the study and practice of wildlife management. Thanks to the generosity of its benefactors, the Brady M. Boyd Wildlife Management Scholarship will help ensure that the brightest and most dedicated individuals, regardless of their financial means, can pursue a career in conservation.
