Who We Are

Here for Good. Here for Dallas. For nearly a century.

Established in 1929, The Dallas Foundation was the first community foundation in Texas – today we’re boldly driving philanthropy for tomorrow’s Dallas. Our donors are dedicated to the well-being of Dallas’ next generation; whether fostering early childhood development, building monumental new bridges, or sustaining a life-changing urban farm. Together, we’re making progress you can see. Together, we’re building a greater Dallas.
