Grant Overview

In addition to providing investment services, the Episcopal Foundation of Dallas (the “Foundation”) offers direct financial support to the Diocesan community through an annual grant program benefiting parishes, schools, and other not-for-profit agencies throughout the Dallas Diocese.

The Foundation prioritizes grants that strengthen and support new and existing Episcopal churches, schools, and ministries within the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas (the Diocese).

The Foundation also supports non-Episcopal charitable organizations whose submitted program or project is consistent with Christian ministry and missions of the Foundation and the Diocese and which support basic human needs for under resourced people and communities in these areas: 

  • Food Insecurity – organizations and social outreach programs that provide food to underserved populations
  • Homelessness – organizations that work to prevent homelessness, provide emergency shelter or temporary housing, and facilitate collaboration among service providers
  • Poverty –organizations that work to break the cycle of poverty with resources, referrals and services that strengthen families and neighborhoods.
  • Health Insecurity – organizations that provide free/low cost healthcare, including mental healthcare.

Grants are awarded once a year. Applications are accepted beginning in February. The grant application deadline is March 31. If March 31 falls on a weekend, the deadline is the next business day.

New in 2023.  In 2023 the Foundation began using a new cloud-based grant management software solution from Foundant Technologies.  Applicants are re-directed to the online log-in portal from this website via the “Grant Application” link.  Applications,  all supporting documents plus all communications and follow-ups will be stored on the site.  We believe you will find the new process streamlined and very easy to use!
