The John M. O'Quinn Foundation


Menninger Clinic PlaqueJohn M. O'Quinn (1941-2009) established The John M. O’Quinn Foundation (the "Foundation") in 1986. With his death in 2009, Mr. O'Quinn willed his entire estate to the Foundation. As of December 31, 2016, the Foundation has awarded more than $113 million in grants.  Most of the funds have been given within the state of Texas with a special emphasis on Houston, Mr. O'Quinn's home since his youth.
