PROFILE: The Louis L. Borick Foundation was established in 1997 by Louis Borick, the founder of Superior Industries International, a leading manufacturer of aluminum wheels used in automobiles. Based in Houston, Texas, the foundation aims to “create opportunity for people to reach their full potential, positively contribute to society and participate in a culturally rich community by supporting education, youth, leadership development, and the arts.” Its stated initiatives are arts, early childhood education, foster youth, preservation, LGBT and animal welfare.
The foundation’s early childhood education grants “support nonprofit organizations and collaborative initiatives working to strengthen families, support parents as their child’s first teacher, and increase access to high quality early learning.” Past grantees include Para Los Niños , an organization providing early education and social services to underserved communities in Los Angeles, and the Center for Education of the Infant Deaf. A complete list of past grants is provided on the foundation’s website.
Borick’s grants average between $10,000 and $150,000. The foundation supports organizations across the United States, but prioritizes Northern California, Southern California, Montana and Texas. Borick does not currently accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
