The Dallas Community Foundation is a non-profit corporation established in 1995 to benefit the people of the Dallas area. We provide financial support for educational, social, recreational, and cultural programs in the Dallas area, directly serving youth, seniors, and those in need. We also administer scholarship funds. The foundation is only possible because of the financial contributions of people like you. A donation to the Foundation is truly an investment in the Dallas area, connecting those who care with causes that matter.

Who are we?

We are part of the community, just like you. We are professionals, citizens, civic leaders, and volunteers. We are passionate about the special place where we live, work and raise our families. The founders of Dallas and those before us invested in the community, making a mark for future generations to come. It is in this spirit that we make our mark on the programs and activities that support our local community today and tomorrow. We serve on the board with a sense of pride, but also with a strong sense of responsibility and stewardship. For a list of board members and staff, click here.

History
The idea of a community foundation, an opportunity to establish a local fund that could give back to the Dallas community, originated with the Dallas Rotary Club. In 1995, a group of 9 men and women, sharing this vision, established the Dallas Community Foundation. These individuals strongly valued and believed in their community. Each contributed $25 to establish an account. They went out into the community, raised funds, and established an investment fund. That was 15 years ago.

Today, the fund is valued at over $1,500,000, and has given back nearly $400,000 in scholarships and grants to the Dallas community.
