FRIENDS OF THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Your gift of $300 or more will help diversify the Community Foundation’s revenue base by adding another revenue source for operations and become a lasting resource for the Community Foundation to thrive. The last few years have been transformational – from the scope of our programming to the level of new donor cultivation that increases our potential impact and improves our community’s well-being.
Contributions to this program provide academically gifted and under-served Latino/a, African American and Native American high school students with advanced instruction in math, science, writing and college counseling over three consecutive summers. Click here to visit the (HS)2 website.
READ FORT WORTH
Only 1 of every 3 third-graders in the 87,000-student Fort Worth ISD are reading on grade level, severely limiting their opportunities and the city’s future workforce. Read Fort Worth was established in 2016 as a privately-funded collective impact effort to align partners, strategies and resources so that 100% of third-graders will read on grade level by 2025. Modeled after successful initiatives across the U.S., Read Fort Worth exists to accelerate and scale up actions of practitioners and experts working to make sure that all children are ready for kindergarten and can succeed in school.

The Community Foundation’s ToolBox Grants program provides nonprofits with the resources they need to improve their strength and stability. It runs on a three-year cycle with each sequence addressing a designated area of need for the community. Current donations are building nonprofit capacity in seven underserved areas of Tarrant County. Click here to view the 2019 ToolBox Donor Catalog.
