Who we are

Spindletop was founded in 1966 to connect members of the energy industry with non-profits to benefit local children

Our Mission

Spindletop Community Impact Partners, Inc. enhances the lives of at-risk youth through funding and volunteering from the energy industry, while promoting fellowship and networking among its participants.

Since its inception nearly $25 million has been raised to assist programs that support child abuse prevention; pediatric medical research; human tracking prevention and recovery; substance abuse prevention and rehabilitation; education and scholarships, including after-school programs; residential centers and foster care; family health and well-being and much more.

Our History

Spindletop Community Impact Partners, Inc. was founded in 1966 by a young man working in the oil industry, Loy D. “Butch” Griffin. His vision was to build an organization promoting goodwill and fellowship within the oil and gas industry while benefiting children in need.

Griffin chose the name “Spindletop” to ensure the organization would be recognized by the oil and gas industry. Today because of its solid foundation and support from the industry and dedicated volunteers, Spindletop continues to make significant contributions to Houston-area youth non-profits.

Since its inception, nearly $26 million has been raised to assist programs that support the following: child abuse prevention; pediatric medical research; human tracking prevention and recovery; substance abuse prevention and rehabilitation; education and scholarships, including after-school programs; residential centers and foster care; family health and well-being and much more.

Spindletop Community Impact Partners is governed by a Board of Directors, consisting of executives representative of the service and operating sectors of the energy industry. The Spindletop Emerging Leader Steering Committee (ELSC) is made up of rising leaders within the energy industry. The Committee spearheads volunteer service projects with Spindletop non-profit partners that are open to anyone in the industry to participate. Spindletop is managed by a staff that works closely with the Board, ELSC, donors and volunteers to carry out the day-to-day operations of the organization as well as advocate for the youth agencies supported through volunteering and networking. The Spindletop office is located in Houston at the SLB corporate headquarters thanks to an extraordinarily generous in-kind gift from the corporation.
