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.
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.
For over 90 years, TPF has developed a rich heritage that continues to strengthen our organization’s goal in helping our clients and partners expand mission.
TPF’s total assets—an accumulation of cash and cash equivalents, pooled and other investments—total more than $946 million.
TPF expands its services to churches, institutions, and non-profit organizations throughout the United States.
TPF expands its services to include non-Presbyterian mission-based nonprofit organizations.
The TPF Balanced Pooled Fund becomes our flagship investment product, giving partners a single-managed investment option that supports a UPMIFA-compliant spend policy.
TPF expands its services to any Presbyterian-related entity within the Synod as well as entities outside of the Synod.
TPF expands its services to include Charitable Gift Annuities and other individual legacy options.
The Synod of Texas employs two staff members and several Synod institutions placed their endowment funds with the reconstituted foundation for investment.
TPF is established as a holding corporation for the receipt and administration of funds. Monetary properties become entrusted to TPF according to the intent of donors.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service.
