What We Fund

The Foundation supports capital projects (i.e., building construction, acquisition, renovation, equipment, vehicles, and technology) of nonprofit organizations in Texas, primarily in the Dallas area.  When grants are made outside of this geographic preference, it is likely due to a historical interest exhibited by the founder, a current interest by a board member, or the large scope of impact the grant would have on that particular region of Texas. 

Under present policy of the Board of Directors, grants are not made for debt retirement, endowments, media productions, operations, programs, research, scholarships.   A few grants in these categories have been made, but they are infrequent and initiated by the Foundation.  Grants are typically not made to an organization more than once every three to four years.

FUNDING CATEGORIES

The foundation makes grants in the seven funding categories outlined below.  Although there are not specific granting targets within each category, historical funding is reflective of general preferences.
