Andy Beal and his banks, Beal Bank and Beal Bank USA, have donated millions of dollars to colleges and charity sponsorships and to prizes for science and math education. The fairs are sanctioned events of the International Science & Engineering Fair, and open to students in grades 6 through 12. Winners move on to national and international competitions.
In addition to annual sponsorships of science and engineering fairs, Mr. Beal’s companies have made donations to other worthy causes, such as donations of computers and computer equipment to the Dallas Independent School District, the Clark County (Nevada) School District, and to NPower North Texas to help low to moderate income schools and areas. Mr. Beal also donated $1 million to the new, world-class Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas.
