Grant Description
Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to address the needs of local children. Grant funds may be used for facilities, equipment, and hiring and training individuals. Preference will be given to proposals from organizations with small budgets and limited exposure to other avenues of support. Eligible applicants serve children in the Houston area.

The Children’s Fund, Inc. raises money each year for charitable purposes directed at assisting children in the Houston area. The Fund looks for proposals that identify a specific need that will be addressed either by the purchase of equipment, facilities, or through the hiring or training of individuals to provide services.

The Children’s Fund maintains focus in awarding grants and looks to support charities that will thrive in part because of its support. Therefore, the Fund typically looks for the following criteria:

  • Serves children in the Houston area
  • Small budgets
  • Minimal internal or external fundraising capabilities
  • Limited exposure to the Houston business community 
  • Nominal (or no) support from government or other large charitable organizations (i.e. United Way)
  • Small administrative departments


Additional Eligibility Criteria
This grant is open to charities serving Houston-area children. Applicants must submit proof of charitable status (i.e. 501(c)3 certification).

The Fund is reluctant to provide funding for general operating expenses or budget support.
