We tackle tough problems. How? By finding, funding, and partnering with the most effective local organizations who create real opportunities and get results.

We invest in programs that prepare kids to graduate ready to succeed, help families leave poverty behind, make quality healthcare accessible, and ensure safe places to call home.

There’s no one way to create lasting, generational change. And that’s the kind of change we’re talking about when we tackle complex interconnected issues like school dropouts, poverty, and poor health. So our game plan is focused on key areas that require experience and cross-sector coordination.



In 2010, residents of North Texas developed ten-year community goals. But they’re more than goals to us; they’re expectations. And we’re committed to doing everything we can to help North Texans reach them.
