Choose a Type of Fund
We have five different types of funds: Advised, Scholarship, Designated, Agency Endowment, and Field-of-Interest.
Donors may either make gifts to establish these funds while living, or establish one of these funds through a planned giving vehicle (such as a charitable remainder trust) or straight bequest.
Donors may also choose to benefit the Dallas community as a whole through our Community Impact Fund. The fund enables
The Dallas Foundation to respond to changing community needs and
emergencies, to support innovative solutions to community problems and
to enhance the quality of community life. No restrictions are placed on
how these funds can be used, leaving their most effective charitable
application to the expertise and discretion of the Foundation's Board of
