Two prominent Texas foundations recently awarded generous grants to Humanities Texas for the restoration of the historic Byrne-Reed House. The T. L. L. Temple Foundation of Lufkin has approved a grant of $100,000, and the Dian Graves Owen Foundation of Abilene has awarded a three-year grant totaling $30,000. Both of these grants will count toward the required three-to-one match of the $1 million challenge grant awarded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The T. L. L. Temple Foundation and Dian Graves Owen Foundation grants underscore Humanities Texas's three and a half decades of service to communities throughout the state and the statewide thrust of the capital campaign to restore the Byrne-Reed House.
