The five Howard Children established the Ralph and Billie Howard Foundation for Scholarship and Technology, and in 1997 The Internal Revenue service recognized the Foundation as a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. The Foundation:

 - honors the parents who encouraged the Howard children and expected the best efforts of each,
 - assists deserving students in the pursuit of their educational goals, and
 - helps teachers who want to improve and/or update professional training and to acquire new skills in using technology.

The directors of the Foundation work with school counselors and administrators to select deserving, talented students and teachers who can benefit from cash awards for tuition, materials, books, seminars, and workshops.

Since five of the six of the original Foundation directors attended schools in Lindale, Texas, the focus has been on the Lindale School District, but applicants from any school will be reviewed.
