In 1997, Linda & Jack Gill established The Gill Foundation of Texas to formalize the Gill family’s involvement in education.  To date, gifts and grants total approximately $30,000,000.  The Gill Foundation of Texas focuses on providing Scholarships for economically disadvantaged students; creating Centers of Excellence in technical fields (e.g., cardiovascular sciences, neurosciences and entrepreneurial programs for  scientists, engineers & physicians); and creating novel courses, seminars and programs to promote Interdisciplinary Collaboration at universities. 

The Gill family's philosophy is to encourage and support all the education their children and grandchildren choose to seriously pursue, and to encourage their independence, development of self-confidence and determined pursuit of their individual careers.  Linda and Jack Gill believe that their children, as their careers unfold, will share their time, talents and successes to further the Gill family’s support the Foundation's philanthropic mission.
