Foundation Overview

The Rainwater Charitable Foundation (RCF) is a private family foundation based in Fort Worth, Texas, founded by Richard E. Rainwater in 1991. We approach our philanthropic giving with humility, and pursue initiatives where we can involve partnerships and measure impact.

Program Areas

In all areas of giving, RCF seeks to employ the same strategies and values that Mr. Rainwater used for business investments. We seek out programs with measurable success, strong leadership and the ability to scale for greater impact.
