Benefiting the Texas Ranger Association Foundation
The Texas Ranger Association Foundation, Inc. (TRAF) was organized in 1982 to support active and retired Texas Rangers, a division of the Texas Department of Public Safety since 1935. TRAF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Texas Corporation.

- To preserve and perpetuate the history and heritage of the Texas Rangers.
- To assist active and retired Texas Rangers, their spouses and dependents, as well as spouses and dependents of deceased Texas Rangers in need of emergency relief and assistance. TRAF also hosts an annual reunion for retired Texas Rangers.
- To establish and administer a scholarship fund to aid the children of active Texas Rangers who plan to attend or are attending accredited colleges or universities.
- To assist with the expansion, improvement and operations of the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame Museum in Waco, TX.
We work to support our Texas Rangers by providing scholarships to the children of active duty Rangers. The scholarship program was established in 1988 to defray the burden of costs associated with higher education. Presently an average of 50 students attending a college, university or accredited trade school receive a TRAF (Texas Ranger Association Foundation) scholarship each year. Each fulltime student receives $4,000 per year. Since 1988, TRAF has awarded over $1.6 million in scholarships.

For more than 110 years, HEB’s commitment and involvement in the community has been an important part of the way they do business. HEB is proud to support initiatives like the H-E-B Food Bank Assistance Program, their annual Feast of Sharing holiday dinners, and the Spirit of H-E-B trailer that provides on-site relief in areas devastated by natural disasters.
It’s their way of saying thank you for allowing them to be our neighbor. They call it H-E-B’s Spirit of Giving. In this spirit, they have contributed five percent of pre-tax earnings to public and charitable programs since the 1930’s.
Their commitment to the community is deeply rooted in their company. After all, they’re from here, too! H-E-B is proud to be the Chief Sponsor of the Texas Ranger Classic Company “D” Sporting Clay Tournament. Nothing is more Texas than H-E-B and the Texas Rangers!
