The Beam Foundation

About Us

The Beam Foundation is a non profit created for the purpose of touching the lives of others through philanthropy. Most people want to know they are making a difference in the lives of others; many are just not quite sure how to do it.

The dream started small, raising money for awareness for The American Lung Association, Jonathan's Place, and worthy causes like Back on My Feet. Through passionate folks that have supported our efforts, The Beam Foundation experienced wild success. We were inspired by this support and created The Beam Foundation.

Over the last several years, we have supported a variety of causes, primarily through fundraising and will continue to do so.

We have, however, embarked on a new endeavor, one for which we are extremely passionate about. The Beam Foundation has created Texas Alliance for Homeless Pets, a group whose mission is to resolve the underlying issues of homeless pets in Texas through community collaborative effort.

The mission is simple: Resolve the underlying issues of homeless pets in Texas and find every pet a healthy, happy home through community outreach and collaborative efforts.

We need your help, please contact us!

Birth of The Beam Foundation

Throughout the history of Pegasus Logistics Group, a worldwide logistics and transportation company, its employees have followed the example of their leader and founder, Ken Beam, in his focus on bringing a passionate approach to all aspects of their lives. In 2004, Ken's passion infected some of the employees' and their spouses with the idea to take fundraising efforts to a new level. In an unbelievable four weeks, a silent auction sprung out of an immense energy fueled by the new possibilities of actually changing the world around them. The initial fundraising goal that was set forth was "blown out of the water," raising over $17,000. The effort was furthered with individual efforts by the employees of Pegasus, combining to raise a total of $35,000, which was donated to the American Lung Association.

More importantly, the combined efforts allowed everyone to realize what a powerful impact a small group of people can make with the right vision. Ken and Darla Beam's dream was born in 2005, as The Beam Foundation hosted its first annual golf tournament and auction at the Tribute, which raised an almost unheard of first year mark of $70,000.
