WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1981, the North Texas Community Foundation is a Fort Worth-based 501(c)(3) that provides philanthropic solutions for the benefit of individuals and the community as whole.
Our service area includes 11 counties in the North Texas region, including Bosque, Denton, Hill, Hood, Jack, Johnson, Parker, Tarrant, Wise and Young counties.
Since we office in the heart of North Texas we are closely connected to community needs – we are able to see the big picture, monitor the landscape and perform due diligence to identify nonprofit organizations that are doing the outstanding work in the community. This saves donors time while ensuring their donations will do the most good. In a sense, we create unity among donors, nonprofits and vital community needs.

We offer smart solutions for professional advisors who want to help their clients gain maximum tax advantages. We offer a wide array of services to connect the philanthropic passions of donors to specific community needs, allowing them to fulfill charitable goals in a meaningful way 5, 10 or 20 years from now.
We help individuals, families and businesses establish charitable funds using a variety of assets, including noncash assets. Grants are made from these funds to nonprofit groups that meet the charitable goals of the donor.
The North Texas Community Foundation has earned its National Standards for U.S. Community Foundation accreditation from the Council on Foundations. This accreditation represents operational effectiveness to foster excellence in community philanthropy.
