Community Impact Fund 

Grants from the Community Impact Fund are offered each fall from the Foundation's general endowment. These grants support a variety of causes, including early learning, social services, and healthcare.

The Dallas Foundation will determine the parameters of the Fall 2021 funding cycle during the coming months. Please check back this summer for updated information.
