Grants starting at $10,000 to North Texas nonprofit organizations for projects and programs addressing poverty relief, education, and health. Preference is given to programs serving Dallas County and the surrounding areas. Priority consideration will be given to the following types of requests:

- Construction/improvements of permanent buildings
- Programs and special projects for education, health and poverty relief
- Capital campaigns
- Buildings, facilities, and equipment

Approximately 90% of grant funds are paid to organizations in North Texas, with emphasis on charitable services in the Dallas area. Grant requests for capital and program support are strongly encouraged.

The Trustees favorably consider proposals which are unique, necessary and of high priority for the charitable organizations, and which do not duplicate other services which are available; proposals for which funding may not be readily available from other sources; and essential projects which are sufficiently described as worthwhile, important and of a substantive nature. Grants to meet challenges or matching funds have a special appeal.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must be classified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501(c)(3) public charity.

An organization that receives a one-year grant from the Foundation must skip 2 years before submitting a subsequent application. For example, if your organization submitted a grant application for the February 2017 deadline and was awarded a grant in June, your organization is not eligible to re-apply until February of 2019.

An organization that receives a multi-year grant from the Trust is not eligible to apply until 2 years after the close of its grant cycle. If your last request was declined, one year must expire before you apply again. For example, if your organization submitted a grant application for the February 2017 deadline and was awarded a 2-year grant in June, your organization would not be able to re-apply to the Hillcrest Foundation until February of 2020.

Grant requests for general operating support will not be considered.
