anytime.

History
The Beaumont Foundation of America was funded as part of the settlement of
a historic $2.1 billion nationwide class action case. Three Beaumont, Texas
lawyers, Wayne A. Reaud, Gilbert I. Low and Hubert Oxford, conceived of an
ingenious approach to use large class action litigation for public good.
They then procured an order from Federal District Judge Thad Heartfield.
Under this model, unclaimed portions of class action recovery are placed in
a foundation which is dedicated to addressing unmet social needs. The
Beaumont Foundation of America, the product of this model approach, will
use its $350 million corpus to provide computers to low income students,
the poor, hospitals, churches and libraries in all fifty states and the
District of Columbia.
