Community Impact Fund
As we look to the future, the Foundation’s focus includes Community Impact, ultimately leveraging our local knowledge, convening power, and collective resources to help create a better future for all Houstonians. Our Community Impact Fund expands our collective reach to fuel new strategic investments to make Houston a more vibrant region for all.
This new annual grantmaking opportunity led by a committee of diverse experts and community leaders will dig deep into a pressing community need, allowing our Foundation donors and partners the ability to invest in innovative solutions with impact.
Do you know where your generosity is needed most? Understanding Houston is a collaborative regional indicators project that provides key data for philanthropists and business and nonprofit leaders to drive decision-making in important areas of investment in Houston.
From natural disasters to pandemics, Greater Houston Community Foundation has been a critical leader in disaster response efforts providing much-needed assistance to our most vulnerable neighbors.
