“Our great state of Texas has a rich history of responding to challenges with ingenuity and bold solutions.”

— Lyda Hill, Lyda Hill Philanthropies Founder
A distinctive "hoodoo" rock formation near Capitol Peak in Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Armstrong County in the Texas Panhandle.  A hoodoo (also called a tent rock and fairy chimney) is a tall, thin spire of rock that protrudes skyward.  It is formed when weaker surrounding rock washes away.

“We are excited to assist Lyda Hill Philanthropies in finding solutions that improve Texans’ healthcare options, protect its environment and boost residents’ workforce opportunities.”
