The Foundation awards grants for specific purposes within the areas of aging population; arts, culture, and history; children and youth; education; and indigent. The Foundation’s North Texas giving guidelines changed starting in 2015. Please click here for more details about what we fund.
Regardless of the focus area, the Foundation does not fund certain kinds of requests, such as sponsorship of fundraising events. Please click here for more information about what we do not fund.
Types of Support
The majority of Foundation funding is for program support, but the Foundation also awards some capital grants. To research past Foundation grants in North Texas, click here.
The King Foundation awards grants to agencies that either are located in, or are serving residents of five North Texas counties (click here for a map). Agencies based outside our service area may be eligible to apply for funding. Please contact the Foundation to discuss your eligibility before submitting a request.
Deadlines and Timelines
All letters of inquiry and applications must be submitted electronically by 4:30 p.m. on the deadline. Each submission must be complete as of the deadline.
The Foundation observes a two-year window between grant awards. (As an example, if an agency were funded in the fall 2017 grant cycle, it would be eligible to apply for new funding in the fall 2019 cycle.) There is no waiting period if a request is declined.
