Purpose Statement

The purposes of The Henderson-Wessendorff Foundation are to:

  • Support and encourage people to lead more productive and satisfying lives, to experience and enhance their spirituality and well-being and to preserve and celebrate nature.

The Foundation will primarily accomplish these purposes by:

  • Making grants to organizations which help the people of the greater Richmond, Texas area.
  • Supporting Well Spring Center, Blanco, Texas, a Christian retreat environment.
  • Creating centers for the preservation and appreciation of open space at Long Acres Ranch on the Brazos River near Richmond, Texas and the Narrows area on the Blanco River in Texas.

The Foundation will conduct its work in a respectful way with focused efforts towards meaningful impacts.

HW Foundation Grant

In the broadest terms, the Foundation’s goal for grant making is to provide funding for appropriate charitable organizations to enhance or support efforts to improve the quality of life for present and future generations of the people of Texas with focus on the greater Richmond, Texas area. To achieve this goal, the Directors have chosen areas of emphasis which include education, historical, animals and wildlife, religious organizations, human services, and mental health including substance abuse.

 In most cases, the minimum amount to be funded would be $10,000 and it is unusual for the Foundation to consider a grant request from the same applicant more frequently than one time within a twelve month period; longer if a grantee has a multi-year grant in process.

  • Under most circumstances, the Foundation does not consider grants to individuals, grants for fine or performing arts, underwriting or sponsorship of fund-raising events, loans, organizations that re-grant, fraternal or political organizations, advertising, direct mail or media projects, travel, conferences, conventions or seminars.
