Our Focus

The Burdine Johnson Foundation is most enthusiastic to support Hays County organizations, or organizations whose outreach extends into Hays County. We support other charities in Central Texas as well, primarily the Austin area, and on occasion will provide assistance outside of the region. However, we rarely donate to organizations outside of Texas.

Beyond our geographic range, The Burdine Johnson Foundation principally supports charities in five categories: arts, education, health and human services, the environment and historic preservation. In 2016, the foundation donated 12% to arts, 17% to education, 32% to health and human services, 13% to the environment, 24% to historic preservation and 1% to other humanitarian causes, totaling $1,607,395.
