We are the Foundation for Community.

Community Building Takes Collaboration

North Texas Community Foundation works with local donors and leaders to respond proactively to the needs of our region. Together, we can cultivate a more vibrant and resilient community where all North Texans can thrive.

Types of Grants

North Texas Community Foundation awards grants year-round to support the needs of our region.


NTCF manages a variety of competitive grant cycles, which are powered by the generosity of our donors. Applications for these opportunities are accepted through our online grants portal. All proposals are reviewed and evaluated by volunteer grant committees consisting of diverse community leaders and subject-matter experts.


NTCF’s community of donors recommend grants from their charitable funds and then the Foundation awards those grants on the donor’s behalf. Nonprofits cannot apply for these funds and they represent over half of NTCF’s annual grant distribution.
