Our Mission

Sooch Foundation seeks to make a positive and permanent change in the lives of economically disadvantaged people in Austin through increased educational opportunities.

What We Do


Help The Community

Here at Sooch Foundation, our goal is to improve the lives of those in our community, right here in Austin, Texas!


Promote Education

Many people, especially of lower socio-economic status, are not given the educational opportunities that were given to the more fortunate of us. Due to this fact, Sooch Foundation aids organizations that improve lives through education.


Provide Opportunities

We help make the goals of organizations in the Austin area a reality by supporting those who promote education and opportunities for all.

Featured Development

Lifeworks Resource Center

One of our most important contributions to the Austin community was our aid in the development of the Lifeworks and Sooch Foundation Resource Center. You can learn more about the resource center and our involvement with it here.
