What’s new in 2023!  We have two exciting developments to share.

First, the Foundation has long been closely related to another grant-making private foundation, the Episcopal Health Foundation of Dallas (the “Health Foundation.”)  The two foundations shared the same staff, Grant Committee, and Board of Trustees and both served the mission and ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. The Health Foundation’s grant focus was primarily medical care in the state of Texas. As of December 31, 2022 the Health Foundation was dissolved and its assets contributed to the Episcopal Foundation of Dallas.  As result, The Foundation’s grant-making capacity grew significantly and its focus for 2023 has been expanded to include support for organizations that address health insecurity.  If you previously applied to the Health Foundation and serve same the geographic area as the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas, you are welcome to apply.

Second, beginning in 2023, the Foundation is using a new cloud-based grant management software solution from Foundant Technologies.  Applicants will be directed to the online log-in portal for applying via the link in the “Grant Application” button below.  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!

The Foundation’s updated grant focus for 2023 is:

The Foundation awards grants to support the strategic mission of the Diocese of Dallas, including development of new and existing churches, schools, and ministries. The Foundation also supports organizations and programs that are focused on mission-related projects, social outreach and other creative programs that strengthen our community and improve lives, and which support basic human needs in these areas: food insecurity, homelessness, poverty, and health insecurity.
