Since 1991, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation has served as the official non-profit funding partner for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. By bringing together companies, corporations, communities and individuals, the Foundation has successfully raised more than $70 million benefiting a wide variety of projects.


For some of those projects, the Foundation has also served as building contractor, real estate assistant, banker, investor and custodian. For others, the Foundation designed and implemented signature project for and with funding partners to accomplish mutual conservation goals.


The Foundation preserves Texas treasures like Chinati Mountains and the Playa Lakes of the Panhandle. Facilities, such as the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center, house programs important to wildlife preservation and study. The Foundation plays an essential role in conservation education, with scholarship opportunities, internships, and outdoor activities for children.
