The Moody Foundation

Charitable foundations are uniquely positioned to take the long view, follow their principles instead of the prevailing trends, and pursue meaningful projects whose true value may only be apparent years or decades later. Founded by W.L. Moody, Jr. and Libbie Shearn Moody in 1942, the Moody Foundation works to make a difference in the lives of the people of Texas. Over the years, the Moody Foundation has made more than $1.2 billion in grants throughout the state to organizations that have educated, healed, nurtured, and inspired generations of Texans.
