Founded in 1981, the North Texas Community Foundation is a Fort Worth-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening our 11-county region through effective philanthropy and civic leadership to address key community issues. We serve local individuals, families and corporations by helping them achieve their charitable goals in a meaningful way – during and beyond their lifetimes.
The Community Foundation is privileged to work in collaboration with our fundholders, their trusted professional advisors, nonprofit partners and civic leaders to make sure North Texas is strong for generations to come.
Since we office in the heart of North Texas we are closely connected to community needs – we are able to see the big picture, monitor the landscape and perform due diligence to identify nonprofit organizations that are doing the outstanding work in the community. This saves donors time while ensuring their donations will do the most good.
Our service area includes 11 counties in the North Texas region, including Bosque, Denton, Hill, Hood, Jack, Johnson, Parker, Somervell, Tarrant, Wise and Young counties.
