The Foundation provides grants throughout the state of Texas, but tries to allocate between one-third and one-half of its grant resources to organizations helping those in the Dallas area. Applications for specific programs or projects, capital projects, and less often, for general operations, are considered. Endowment and scholarship grants are rare. The Foundation also considers program-related investment loans as part of its grantmaking activities.
Requests of any amount are considered. There are no application deadlines, and grant applications are accepted at any time. Each organization is limited to one application within a 12-month period. Applications are acknowledged within one week and are usually processed within three to four months.
No standard application form is required. Applicants may submit a proposal in their own format following the application guidelines set forth below. They also may use the downloadable application form or the online application form available on this site. Please note that the Foundation cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information contained in electronic submittals.
