Grants of up to $1,000 to Texas public schools and grants of up to $10,000 to Texas nonprofit organizations to celebrate and advance gender equity in Dallas County. Funding is intended for events marking the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote. The goal is to collaborate and find effective, inspirational and authentic ways to create conversation, drive positive change and build strategies to advance gender equity.

To mark the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, in 2020 the Foundation seeks to partner with organizations to create a yearlong series of events to recognize the milestone. Grants will be considered for programs and events by nonprofit organizations and public schools to:
- Celebrate: Remember, honor, and applaud those who have moved women from suffrage to seats at many tables and continue to work to improve the position of women in society
- Educate: Tell the story behind the creation and significance of the 19th amendment, including who was involved, what sacrifices were made for it to happen and the women of color who were marginalized to advance the movement
- Activate: Make the call for people to participate in democracy and provide data, information, and solutions for ways to increase Texas’ ranking as 49th among the states when it comes to women’s political participation

CFT’s Letter of Inquiry (LOI) process supports programs that address needs across the North Texas region, with a focus on those which:
- Address an issue or topic relevant to and timely in the community
- Use data, best practices or proof-points of success to create measurable impact
- Support under-resourced communities
- Improve access and outcomes for communities who have been marginalized or have experienced discrimination
- Promote narrative change and storytelling that helps restore and repair community trust and resilience
- Collaborate in a way where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts

The Foundation encourages programs and events that provide a publicly accessible component of the project’s work such that it can be explored and enjoyed by individuals from diverse cultures, ages, and economic means. This can include but is not limited to, exhibitions, screening, panel discussions, participatory classes, and seminars, etc. anything which aims to educate and inspire these audiences across Dallas.
