Purpose and Activities

Giving to enable organizations or entities to add opportunity, freedom of action and choice, self-betterment and a climate for change to the lives of residents of the Shreveport, LA, area.


Established in 1960 in LA - Established as Charles T. Beaird Foundation in December 1960, as philanthropic arm of a business owned by Charles T. Beaird. Became a stand-alone family foundation when he sold the business, operated by a board of Dr. Beaird, his wife, and their three adult children. In 1995 established a category known as "Member," available to any descendant of Charles and Carolyn, whether by birth, adoption or step-, at age 18. The Members elected a nine-member board, which then elects its officers. The current board consists of the late Charles and Carolyn's three children, and six of their children. The foundation is designed to operate in perpetuity, always with a Board whose majority are to be family members
