Sid W. Richardson

Grants from the Sid W. Richardson Foundation help to advance the missions
of nonprofit organizations that serve the people of Texas. Grants are made primarily to educational, health, human service, and cultural organizations. No grants are made to individuals.

Sid W. Richardson established the Foundation in 1947. When substantial income from assets from the late Mr. Richardson’s estate became available in 1962, the Foundation began its current program of distributing major grants. Although his interests reached beyond Texas and his personal contacts were worldwide, he retained his utmost concern for the people of his home state. Throughout the years, the Board of Directors and staff have sought to fulfill his vision.

Because of his interest in the American West, Mr. Richardson became an avid collector of paintings by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell and other prominent American artists. Today, these magnificent paintings are on permanent exhibit in Fort Worth in the Sid Richardson Museum, which is supported by the Foundation.
