The Foundation makes grants for two specific purposes:
- to alleviate fear, pain and suffering of animals and to promote animal protection and the prevention of cruelty to animals, and
- to research, promote and document all facets of Texas History.
To apply for a Texas History grant:
- Prior to submitting a proposal, grantseekers should contact the Program Officer in Texas History by telephone at 214-363-9000 or e-mail to schedule a discussion of the proposed project.
- After discussing your proposal with the Program Officer, a letter of inquiry of no more than three pages should be sent to the Program Officer along with a cover sheet. In order to be processed, a completed cover sheet MUST be submitted with the letter of inquiry.
Once received, the letter of inquiry is reviewed by the Grants Committee. If selected for further review, the grant seeker will be notified to submit a formal proposal for consideration by the Board of Directors.
The next deadline for Texas History LOI’s is December 7, 2018 (for possible inclusion at the February 19, 2019 Board meeting), but applicants must have discussed a possible LOI with the Texas History Program Officer before October 1, 2018 to be included in this grant cycle. Due to the high volume of requests, we ask that submissions in the current grant cycle be for $10,000 or less.
