How We Help
Grants to nonprofits in the Texoma area are made possible through unrestricted gifts to THF and annual investment income. Grants can support program needs, operations or capital improvements with a strong emphasis on match (cash and/or in-kind), evaluation and sustainability.
The Integrity of the Process is to maintain a fair, confidential and objective review for ALL applicants. This safeguard provides assurance that no one applicant has more or less of a chance of funding due to a past or present connection, or inside knowledge of a Board Member.
The Role of the Grants and Giving Committee is to conduct three stages of review. The first stage is to read and score applications in a confidential and fair independent personal review. Second, the Committee conducts an objective peer panel review. Last, the Committee is responsible for submitting a Recommendations and Funding Report to the Board for full discussion, modification and final approval.
The Staff’s Role is to provide support and clarification only. Staff help assures that the Board adheres to policies and processes, as well as complies with the annual giving budget. Foundation staff administers funds in accordance with board and donor guidelines and annual income budgets.
