The Foundation does and shall exist to support the historical preservation, charitable and educational efforts and programs of the Former Texas Rangers Association. Specifically, the Foundation's goals are to bring Texans to the understanding that these character traits of the Texas Rangers - courage, determination, integrity, dedication, and respect - have been, and continue to be, fundamental and critical to the greatness of Texas. And further, to encourage the next generation of Texans to practice these traits with a goal of perpetuating our heritage as a truly unique region and citizenry.
