The Larry Hagman Foundation is a non-profit organization, founded by the actor Larry Hagman, that supports and promotes creative arts education for economically disadvantaged children in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
A Texas native, Larry Hagman is back in Dallas for his second-act as J.R. Ewing, the character that everyone loves to hate. Hagman is filming the second season of TNT’s hit “Dallas” TV show and he wanted to do something extra to give back to the city that has contributed so much to his success over the years. He founded The Larry Hagman Foundation to promote the educational benefits of drama, visual arts, dance and music and to fund organizations providing these instructional programs for low-income children.
The Larry Hagman Foundation currently operates as a component fund of The Dallas Foundation,
a tax exempt, publicly supported charity.
