About the North Texas Community Foundation
The North Texas Community Foundation helps individuals, families and businesses establish charitable funds using a variety of assets. Grants are made from these funds to nonprofit groups that meet the charitable goals of the donor.
Since we are located here in North Texas, we are closely connected to community needs – able to see the big picture, monitor the landscape and perform due diligence to identify nonprofit organizations that are doing outstanding work. This saves donors time while ensuring that their donations will do the most good. In a sense, we create unity among donors, nonprofit organizations and vital community needs.
Today, the North Texas Community Foundation holds permanent and pass-through funds for more than 190 individuals and families. We make grants in arts and culture, community and economic development, education, environment, and health and human services.
Since our inception, the Community Foundation has distributed almost $180 million in grants to benefit worthy causes.
Money wisely invested.
The North Texas Community Foundation is overseen by a volunteer Governing Board comprised of civic leaders with diverse backgrounds in business, philanthropy, investments and community leadership.
Founded in 1981 and with assets of more than $200 million, the Community Foundation is currently among the top 10 percent of community foundations in the nation. There are more than 750 community foundations nationwide.
Significantly for doors and professional advisors, we are Community Foundation National Standard certified. This means that we have achieved operational excellence in six key areas – mission, structure and governance, resource development, stewardship and accountability, grantmaking and community leadership, donor relations and communications.
