"We believe in El Paso and the Borderplex region, and know there is tremendous potential. This underscores why our charitable giving will remain focused here, the place we call home."
- Woody L. Hunt
Since its establishment in 1987, the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation has worked to enhance and strengthen the Borderplex region - a unique binational, bicultural border community that includes El Paso County, Texas, South Central New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez. The Foundation also supports organizations and individuals whose projects more broadly impact the state of Texas and the United States, particularly in education and healthcare.
The Foundation is funded by shareholders of Hunt Companies Inc., a diversified, family-owned holding company that began as a retail lumber store in 1947 and now invests in operating businesses, real estate assets, and infrastructure assets in North America, Europe, and Australia. It continues the Hunt family’s commitment to integrity, hard work, and building for future generations.
For three decades, the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation has made and committed more than $147.9 million in support of over 2,934 initiatives and 624 sponsoring organizations.
