Rockwell Fund

Rockwell Fund was founded in 1931 after the death of James Rockwell in the mold of a traditional responsive grant maker for the greater Houston area. Beginning in the early 2000s, the Fund decided to reduce its number of grants, increase their size and focus primarily on community health, education, employment and supportive housing (affordable housing with on-site services). Since its inception, the endowment has grown to more than $125 million with more than $3.7 million and $2.8 million in grants in 2009 and 2010, respectively.
