Since our inception in 1953, we have made more than $1.9 billion in grants to support education, health care, public safety, social service, animals, the arts and more — touching nearly all aspects of life in our community.

The Letter of Inquiry process supports programs that address needs across the North Texas region (Collin, Dallas, Denton, Rockwall and Tarrant Counties). Through this process, each year, Communities Foundation of Texas has provided approximately 50 to 60 grants annually between $5,000-$20,000 to nonprofits in the region. Below is the list of all the nonprofits that were grant recipients in 2019.
