What is a community foundation?

A Community Foundation is a tax-exempt, nonprofit, philanthropic entity dedicated to serving needs and benefiting the community in a given area.

The Dallas Foundation is the oldest community foundation in the state, and no one knows the Dallas community like we do. The Dallas Foundation is involved in a variety of forward-looking, impact-driving initiatives around North Texas. We are dedicated to the work of connecting donors with an extensive network of nonprofits that aid our community and its needs, and that means smarter grantmaking and greater impact.
