The T. Boone Pickens Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, improves lives through grants supporting education, medical research/development and services, athletics and corporate wellness, at-risk youths, the entrepreneurial process, conservation and wildlife programs and a wide-range of public policy initiatives.
“We’ve always worked to give back to the community, and this continues that tradition and allows us to move forward with a greater philanthropic focus,” Mr. Pickens explained in forming the Dallas-based foundation in 2006.
The foundation does not accept unsolicited letters, emails or calls of inquiry. The grant application is by invitation only, through a request for proposal process. Grant recipients must be invited to apply by a member or members of the foundation committee.
