The Mission of the Foundation is to assist in and/or create, equip or provide for the maintenance or expansion of Exempt Organizations or programs within Exempt Organizations which, to the extent deemed appropriate by the directors of the Foundation, operate in a manner that is consistent with historic Judeo-Christian principles, and consistent with protecting and enhancing the rights of private property, free enterprise and minimizing the role of government in the affairs of individuals.
The Allen Lovelace Moore and Blanche Davis Moore Foundation (which does business as The Blanche Davis Moore Foundation) was incorporated in 1993 as a Texas nonprofit corporation by virtue of the Last Will and Testament of Blanche Davis Moore, which called for the establishment of a charitable foundation from the assets of her estate to primarily benefit children under the age of 18 years of age in Nueces County and the immediately surrounding counties. The development by the executors of her estate of Mrs. Moore's farmland located along SPID (much of which today is known as Moore Plaza) led to the initial funding of the Foundation, which today contributesto more than 85 charities that benefit children of the Coastal Bend.
