About the Grant Teaff Foundation
The Grant Teaff Foundation is a nonprofit organization that is committed to recognizing and supporting the education and development of Texas high school students in the areas of servant leadership and community service. Our mission is to empower young Texans to become leaders in their communities and to make a positive impact on the world. We also provide financial assistance to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, a nonprofit organization located in Waco, Texas, that celebrates the accomplishments of Texas athletes and promotes the benefits of sports for young people.
“The Teaff family celebrates Grant’s 90th birthday by establishing the Grant Teaff Foundation. He has made a difference in the lives of coaches and athletes by instilling values and developing character that goes beyond the game. The foundation will extend this legacy.”
