Funding Notice Update


To allow for greater strategic focus on key issues impacting North Texas women and girls, the Dallas Women's Foundation is consolidating all community funding into the fall cycle. This means there will not be an open RFP in January. The community funding that would traditionally be awarded in the spring will move to fall. Please note this change does not impact the invitation-only Economic Security Initiative which will continue to be processed in the spring.

Those of you who have been with us in the past know that "fall" is a bit of a misnomer! The next grant application will be posted here, on the Dallas Women's Foundation website, on June 1, 2018 with applications for funding due in mid-July. As always, the fall grants are awarded in late November.

Community agencies with a current or historical tie to a faith or religious entity will be able to apply in the fall for that designated funding just as they have traditionally done in the spring. Note that these programs, like all programs funded by Dallas Women's Foundation, cannot proselytize nor require recipients to participate in religious activities as a part of receiving service.

If you have any questions, please contact Shonda Barnet, Grants & Research Manager, at Mark your calendar for June 1 and we look forward to continuing to support programs that are enriching the lives of women and girls across North Texas.
