Grants of up to $50,000 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 will typically focus on charities with the following characteristics:

  • Small budgets
  • Minimal internal or external fundraising capabilities
  • Lack of significant exposure to the Houston business community and lack of support from government or other charitable organizations (i.e. United Way)
  • Small administrative departments
