“The Dallas Foundation is proud to invest in these nonprofits who are making a measurable difference in the lives of North Texans, both now and well into the future,” said Board Chairman J. Puckett.
“The Dallas Foundation continually assesses the needs in our community,” said Jere Thompson, chair of the Foundation’s Community Philanthropy Committee. “When determining which nonprofit organizations to fund, we examine the population served, the geographical reach of the project and the anticipated outcomes, and we strive to identify how the dollars entrusted to us by our donors can make the greatest impact.”
