W.W. Caruth, Jr. Fund Grants

The W.W. Caruth Jr. Fund aims to build thriving communities for all by supporting innovative organizations working in and across the fields of public safety, health, and education. Organizations that need support to investigate, accelerate, or replicate a social change initiative that serves the North Texas region are strongly encouraged to apply.

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is the first round of a two-stage grantmaking process. The RFP document describes the opportunity in full. In this round, we invite short proposals for initiatives that address an important problem in the region by:

  1. Improving systems coordination through partnerships or technology, or
  2. Strengthening and substantially scaling the impact of an evidence-based program.

Proposals Proposals for 2018 were due on August 15, 2018. The application period is now closed. Please hold questions regarding specific programs and projects until the end of October, to allow our team to process and read all of the applications. General questions may still be submitted to grants@cftexas.org. A select number of first-round applicants will be invited to submit a full application in October.

By early October, a select number of first-round applicants will be invited to submit a full application. These applications will be due in mid-December, with final decisions about funding announced in early 2019. Foundation staff will inform all applicants about the status of their applications as decisions are made.

Please follow CFT on Facebook and Twitter using #CFTImpact to stay up to date. We will be using these platforms to share news about what we are learning, answers to questions about this funding cycle, updates on the timeline, and other opportunities that may interest this community.
