Creating Opportunities Through the Gift
of Education

About Us

Who We Are


The Powdermaker Foundation is a private, non-profit foundation established in 2007 by the Powdermaker Family.  It is our primary objective to assist in the advancement of higher education for Dallas County students through scholarship awards.

Our Mission


We believe that higher education is one of the most valuable gifts that one can receive, measurably and positively impacting a child’s confidence and future. It is, therefore, our mission to provide the opportunities and tools to further the education of qualified, motivated individuals who might not otherwise have this opportunity.

The Journey


The Powdermaker Foundation strives to offer both financial and moral support to our scholarship recipients. We believe that providing a support system throughout their higher educational journey ultimately contributes to the success of our students.
