The David Weekley Family Foundation strives to engage the world with integrity, creativity, curiosity, faith and gratitude. We are committed to improvement of self, the responsibility to family, and the betterment of our community and the world.
For more than 25 years, the David Weekley Family Foundation has given grants to nonprofits that demonstrate a positive impact on their community in Houston and across the world. We seek to apply our business acumen to our giving, practicing a model of venture philanthropy. We call the organizations we support “partners” and do our best to encourage and challenge their strategies and assumptions. Solving the world’s most pressing problems requires bold and imaginative leadership, which is why we look for entrepreneurial leaders who defy the status quo and live with a sense of urgency and persistence. We don’t expect perfection from our partners but we do insist on transparency and a relentless drive for continuous improvement.
