For over two decades the Simmons Foundation has partnered with non-profit organizations primarily located in the Gulf Coast region of Texas with the objective of strengthening women, youth and families while building an educated, tolerant and resilient community.

In 2022 the Board of Directors decided to pause funding for a season to allow the Board to assess and evaluate the mission, vision and values of the Foundation as well as the geographic and philanthropic focus of our funding priorities.

The evaluation process will continue through the end of 2023. As this process is completed, updates will be posted on our website detailing the funding priorities and plans for future grantmaking.
