About The Henry House Foundation
The people of North Central Texas and Southern New England have been encouraging and supportive of my career path and it is with great appreciation to these communities that the Henry House Foundation returns those gifts of support and encouragement to them through their best resource – the children.J.J. Henry - Henry House Foundation
Founded by PGA golfer J.J. Henry, Henry House Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to generate public awareness and to support community-based programs that focus on the healthcare and well-being of children in the community. The foundation makes donations to fund specific, tangible projects initiated by children’s medical and support services and organizations in Fort Worth and Southern New England.
Ultimately, the Henry House Foundation is a way for J.J. and his family to help children through projects that physically and emotionally benefit the communities they love.
It is with the support of our great community here in the Fort Worth area and J.J.’s first home in the Fairifeld, CT region that we are able to use this platform to raise funds and awareness to so much causes. We thank our supporters for making this dream a reality as we work daily to lend J.J.’s position to do good for our youth.
The Henry House Foundation is proud to have surpassed over one million dollars in funds raised since our inception in 2006. The numerous community organizations that we have had the honor of supporting all work hard to better the lives of youth in our community.
We have been fortunate that, in conjunction with our friends and partners, we have seen the completion of numerous community projects over the last few years. The initial Henry House project was unveiled during the week of May 19, 2008, coinciding with the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, when the Foundation hosted the grand opening of a golf-themed teen room in Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth. Working closely with Cook Children’s to create a fun, relaxing haven filled with top of the line entertainment and technology for long-term patients, the Henry House was thrilled to see the room already being used on it’s grand opening day. We have since given over $25,000 to Cook Children’s to support this Child Life Zone.
Other groups like The First Tee chapters in Connecticut, Metropolitan New York and Fort Worth have received Henry House support for learning centers, program sites and visits from J.J. himself. We even have the great fortune of work with The Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial again to host an annual program in place each year at the PGA Tour tournament; the Henry House Hideaway started in 2009 and each year hosts thousands of local youth from our partner organizations for a day at the tournament in a “Kid-Themed” Skybox with free lunch, goodies, games and more.

J.J.’s consistent performance and personality make him one of the most captivating players on the PGA TOUR today. In his thirteen consecutive years on Tour, Henry won his first PGA Tour victory at the 2006 Buick Championship in Hartford, CT, calling it his “hometown win” of an event he used to attend as a child; his second came at the 2012 Reno-Tahoe Open. Other career highlights include Henry being chosen as part of the 2006 US Ryder Cup and World Cup teams, representing his country on a global platform. Another career highlight was his recent round of 60, a course-record, at TPC Summerlin at the 2013 Shriners Hospital for Children Open.
