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

  • Grants must be used for charitable or educational purposes and strictly in accordance with the proposal and budget submitted. All unexpended funds must be returned to the Foundation.
  • Any scholarship funds granted are made to institutions and are administered by those institutions. 
  • Funds are granted to organizations with a current Internal Revenue 501c(3) document or to: 
    • departments, agencies, and other services operated within federal, state or local government agencies and 
    • institutions and agencies affiliated with organized religions and religious bodies.


  • The foundation will give priority to grant requests in the local areas.
  • The foundation provides grants throughout the United States, but gives priority to organizations helping those in rural Texas areas.


  • No scholarships or other funds are granted to individuals. 
  • The Foundation Usually Will Not:
    • Grant funds for events that have occurred. 
    • Make long-term commitments.
    • Make grants for buildings, endowments, or research.
  • The foundation is not accepting proposals for international programs in 2017.
  • Grants are rarely given to Houston and Dallas areas, recognizing that those metropolitan areas have foundations and corporations that support those cities exclusively.​​​
