About this funder:



The Ben and Maytee Fisch Foundation is a private family foundation founded in Tyler, Texas, with the intent of benefiting people, specifically those in East Texas.

The Ben and Maytee Fisch Foundation is focused on human needs and strives to help people help themselves. Efforts that the Foundation has supported include:

  • Education: youth and adult
  • Medical / health efforts and research
  • Civic and cultural programs
  • Human services

The Foundation has deep roots in the East Texas region. Dr. & Mrs. Fisch have engaged in a wide range of community and civic activities in and around Tyler, and as a result of their involvement in this geographic region, they developed a deep sense of obligation to the people and communities of East Texas.

Due to the number and magnitude of requests received each year, the Foundation cannot respond favorably to all requests. Thus, grants are made without any commitment for future support of operations or specific projects.
