Grants to USA nonprofit organizations in multiple states for civic educational programs and activities. Funding is intended to increase public understanding of the benefits of freedom and personal and civic responsibility, and the corresponding threat to liberty posed by a lack of informed, active participation by citizens at all levels of government. Foundation grants are generally restricted to programming in Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma, although programs in Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri occasionally are made to qualified organizations.
The purpose of the Hatton W. Sumners Foundation, as stated in its governing documents, is to encourage the study, teaching, and research into the science and art of self-government, to the end that the American People may understand the fundamental principles of democracy and be guided thereby in shaping governmental policies.
The specific efforts of the Foundation include support for:
- Programs and activities that provide personal involvement in the political process and functions of government, such as democracy reform, mock trials, civic engagement programs, and mock legislative sessions, as well as conferences and seminars on relevant public policy issues.
- Teacher training on the founding documents and/or democratic principles.
- Programs and academic contests on American democratic self-government targeting youth, educators, young professionals, and other societal leaders.
- Other programs and activities that, in the opinion of the Trustees, meet the obligations of the Foundation's Statement of Purpose.
