New in 2023! The Foundation has expanded its grant-making capacity.
The Foundation has long been closely related to another grant-making private foundation, the Episcopal Health Foundation of Dallas (the “Health Foundation”), with the two foundations sharing the same staff, Grant Committee, and Board of Trustees. The Health Foundation had a separate grant cycle and its grant focus was primarily medical care in the state of Texas.
As of December 31, 2022 the Health Foundation was merged into the Episcopal Foundation of Dallas. As result of the merger, the Foundation’s Episcopal Fund, and the Foundation’s capacity for grant-making, increased significantly.
Since the Health Foundation’s grant focus was primarily medical care, the Foundation’s grant focus for 2023 has been expanded to include support for organizations that address health insecurity.
We have updated our Recent Awards section to include both Foundations’ 2022 grant cycle results. The combined amount awarded in 2022 was over $550,000. Individual grants awarded typically range in size from $1,000 to $30,000+ depending on the project or program.
