About Us

Since its founding in the early 1990s, the Rainwater Charitable Foundation (RCF or Foundation) has focused on helping vulnerable children in the United States, believing that high-quality education can transform the life trajectories of children and families. A second focus area is medical research in neurodegenerative diseases (specifically tauopathies) with the ultimate goal of finding a cure for these diseases. Employing the same strategies that the late Richard Rainwater used for investing, the Foundation seeks out successful programs around the country with proven, measurable success, strong leadership and the ability to scale for greater impact.


RCF is the largest education funder in the North Texas region and one of the largest foundations in Texas. Current significant projects being funded include the Tau Consortium, the PSP genetics consortium, a new research prize program, the Fort Worth Children’s Partnership, early childhood education, principal preparation and parent education initiatives.
