The Houston Texans Foundation was established in November 2001. It is committed to encouraging and enabling all youth and families in Houston and the surrounding area to reach their full potential and to achieve success. The Houston Texans Foundation works closely with the Texans community relations and marketing departments to help non-profit organizations by providing assistance through educational, financial, volunteer and collaborative support. The foundation administers programs that develop strong minds and bodies, with an emphasis on leadership, integrity and character for the youth who will become the leaders of the next generation.
For the next three years, the Houston Texans Foundation will provide major financial
support to the John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science, Child
Advocates, Inc., Boys & Girls Country, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
and Rebuilding Together.
The foundation administers the Image Net All Stars Ticket Program, and the Reliant Energy Power Readers Program. It coordinated stadium drives during the football season to collect school supplies, books for Houston area libraries, Toys for Tots, cell phones for survivors of domestic violence, food for the Houston Food Bank.
The Houston Texans Foundation also administers programs like the NFL Community
Quarterback Award, NFL Play It Smart Program, and the NFL Grassroots Program.
