The Nolan Ryan Foundation
The Nolan Ryan Foundation , a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was formed in Alvin, Texas in 1990. Nolan and Ruth generously give their time for signing and other fund-raising efforts that enable the Foundation to provide resources for youth, education, and community development.
The construction of the $1.2 million Nolan Ryan Center was the first project the Foundation completed and was donated to Alvin Community College in the fall of 1996. The College uses this building for their Continuing Education Department, and leases back a portion of the building to the Foundation for the Nolan Ryan Exhibit Center. Since that time, funds have been disbursed for projects such as fulfilling a pledge to the Greater Houston YMCA as they bring a new facility to Alvin, Texas, sponsoring teacher conferences, and supporting other local community projects.
We invite you to take part in our efforts by visiting our online store, where you can purchase items autographed by Nolan. We also have information on how you can have Nolan sign your own memorabilia!
