1942    The Moody Foundation was established under a trust indenture by William Lewis Moody, Jr., and his wife, Libbie Shearn Moody, as a private charitable foundation for the benefit of the people of Texas. The foundation gives grants to qualifying organizations in the areas of education, health, arts and humanities, physical life and social sciences, religion, and community and social services. In recent years, special emphasis has been given to historical restoration, the performing arts, and medical research. From 1960 through 1984, the foundation committed more than $143 million. By the mid-1980s foundation assets were in excess of $320 million.
