We’re on a mission to change lives forever in North Texas.

Yes, it’s an incredibly big statement. But it’s one that we are making a reality. We’re tackling tough issues that make a lasting difference and create opportunities for greatness – like graduating college and preparing career-ready teens; helping folks find jobs and keep more of what they earn; enabling access to quality health care; and ensuring everyone has a safe place to call home.

We believe in people and possibilities. We believe that everyone – regardless of where they started or ended up – should have the opportunity to be great. Sometimes the only thing someone needs in order to turn things around is opportunity.

We believe in opportunity. Don’t you?

We fund more 190 of the most effective local programs that work together to create change that lasts. We invest in solutions, but more than that, we invest in the opportunities those solutions provide and the people those solutions empower.
