The Trull Foundation Grant

Established to share God's bounty in Texas and beyond, The Trull Foundation strives to help children in rural areas; those affected by substance abuse; the Palacios Texas area; and the coastal Texas environment.

In October 2012 at a Trull Foundation Retreat, the Trustees set the following priorities:

  • A concern for the needs of Palacios and Matagorda County, where the Foundation has its roots. 
  • A concern for children, channeling lives away from abuse, neglect, hunger and poverty.
  • A concern for those persons and families devastated by the effects of substance abuse.
  • A concern for the coastal Texas environment, recognizing and including water issues, estuaries, birds, agriculture and aquaculture.

The Foundation May:

  • Help prospective grantees consider their funding resources and help plan project assistance. 
  • Support established agencies in development of new programs or in expansion of existing programs.
  • Give priority to projects in Texas, in rural Texas communities and the Foundation’s four focus areas.
  • Match other resources and offer challenge grants.
  • Cooperate with other foundations in funding projects.

The following categories are considered for funding. These areas include projects that improve communities through:

  • Arts/Culture/Humanities
  • Education
  • Environmental/Animals
  • Health
  • Human Services 
  • International
  • Public Affairs/Society Benefit 
  • Religion
