Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that focus on the areas of education, animal awareness, health, and individual, family, and community intervention. Highest priority will be given to organizations operating within the Dallas/Forth Worth Metroplex, and secondary consideration will be given to organizations located in other parts of Texas, as well as throughout the United States.
Priorities for each of the Foundation's focus areas are outlined below:
The Foundation seeks to support unique programs and experiences that have proven impact. The Foundation's primary focus is directed towards early childhood, primary, and secondary education.
Individual, Family, and Community Intervention:
The Foundation supports programs working to promote positive change while fostering self-reliance for individuals and families.
The Foundation focuses on programs in which animal welfare is the core component, as well as programs that promote the importance of the relationship between humans and animals.
The Foundation's focus revolves around two specific areas: diabetes and vision loss. The Foundation also looks to support environmental efforts that promote healthy living environments for all.
Payment on a grant approved in May can be expected no later than June 30th, and those approved in October can be expected no later than November 30th. If payment will not be delivered in that timeframe, a Foundation associate will contact the organization.
