About Us

Founded by Trellis Company (formerly TG), Trellis Foundation is a public charitable organization built on a 40-year heritage of supporting students and families in Texas who are pursuing their educational and career dreams. We focus on improving attainment for low- to moderate-income students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to earn a postsecondary credential or degree.

From 2006 to 2016, Trellis Company committed more than $400 million to help nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions improve the rates of postsecondary completion. The Trellis Foundation’s priorities are guided by the experience and expertise of the company’s prior funding efforts as well as the institutional knowledge of the organization’s work in student debt and decision-making.
