Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations in eligible counties for projects that enhance the skill set of incoming teachers. Funding is intended to provide mentorship, coaching, and continued education in order to expand the pool of well-equipped, diverse, and new teachers. At least half of the population served must reside in one of the eligible counties: Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Erath, Fannin, Grayson, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Montague, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell, Tarrant, and Wise Counties.

Communities Foundation of Texas is seeking North Texas partners who can enhance such efforts through evidence-informed technical assistance, new research that studies the efficacy of our current efforts, and continuous program improvement to innovate and improve outcomes for educators. Since students do better when taught by teachers who match their ethnic and racial characteristics, CFT also aims to ensure that the educator pipeline reflects the diversity of North Texas students and that these educators have the necessary support to obtain positions of leadership within schools.

Funding Categories:
  • Promising Practice Research
  • Strengthening Educator Pathways

Preference will be given to programs that support underrepresented and/or economically disadvantaged populations. Special considerations will be given to programs that target high school students and/or young adults under 34.
