North Texas Community Foundation announces $235,000 in funding to 28 community-based organizations through the ToolBox Grants program.
ToolBox aims to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations working to combat poverty by supporting board development, fundraising or strategic planning. The grants are intended to be one-time, transformative gifts that significantly improve the way the organizations operate. Funding is focused on organizations serving Tarrant County’s most vulnerable communities, based on the CDC’s social vulnerability index.
“We know that a nonprofit’s ability to operate efficiently and effectively depends on effective leadership, stable resources, and smart planning. The past two years have brought significant challenges to local nonprofits and put a spotlight on the critical role they play in our community,” said Rose Bradshaw, president & CEO of North Texas Community Foundation. “ToolBox strengthens local nonprofits so they can continue to provide crucial services for years to come.”

“For several years, the Community Foundation has been proud to provide grants to nonprofits that are uplifting residents of our most vulnerable communities. The latest ToolBox Grants cycle continues this important work,” said Michael Appleman.
ToolBox is made possible thanks to the generous support of Community Foundation donors, NTCF’s endowed funds and private foundation investors. Since its inception in 2010, ToolBox has provided over $3.3 million in grants to 140 nonprofits serving Tarrant County.
