The Dallas Foundation was the first community foundation in the state of Texas.

Since 1929, our sole purpose has been to help donors create charitable funds that reflect their interests and provide nonprofits with resources they need to serve the community. We act as a keystone - a link between donors and the community and causes they care about.

Our mission is to serve as a resource, leader and catalyst for philanthropy by providing donors with flexible means of making gifts to charitable causes that enhance our community.
