Texas Presbyterian Foundation

Beliefs that impact everything we do

At Texas Presbyterian Foundation, we believe that we can make a difference in people’s lives by supporting the mission and ministry of our partners. Christian generosity and philanthropy empower our team to serve others and create a meaningful sense of fulfillment, nurturing long-term relationships that greatly impact generations to come.


A heritage of hope

Originally founded as an agency of the Synod of Texas Presbyterian Church U.S., TPF has given people of vision and generosity the source to express their faith through charitable, philanthropic and planned giving. In its almost 100 years in operation, TPF has provided institutions, organizations and individuals the disciplines of faith with trusted, modern business practices and standards.
