The T.L.L. Temple Foundation
Longstanding Community Support
As part of its longstanding dedication to enriching local Texas communities and improving individual health, the T.L.L. Temple Foundation has contributed $2 million to helping heal children suffering from neurological diseases.
Inspired to Help Prevent Suffering
The foundation's generous gift to the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children's Hospital is the latest in a long line of philanthropic contributions, and one that recognizes the importance of neurological disease prevention and treatment.
"For us, this is an incredible opportunity to support the preventive side of pediatric medicine," says W. Temple Webber Jr., trustee of the Temple Foundation. "We feel that our support for this effort has the potential to impact countless children and families in our community and beyond who suffer from neurological diseases."
About the T.L.L. Temple Foundation
Based in Lufkin, Texas, the Temple Foundation was established in 1962 by Georgie Temple Munz in honor of her father, Thomas Lewis Latané Temple, an East Texas lumberman and founder of Southern Pine Lumber Company. Since its inception, it has awarded more than 3,000 grants totaling in excess of $210 million, making it one of the larger private foundations in the United States.
In addition to the NRI, the foundation funds a variety of research efforts at institutions throughout the Texas Medical Center, including St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, and Baylor College of Medicine.
