Houston Endowment is a place-based funder that is deeply committed to addressing our community’s most significant challenges and reducing barriers to opportunities. Their current priorities are to strengthen public education, increase informed civic engagement, and enhance Greater Houston’s arts, cultural organizations, and greenspaces.
To be eligible to receive funding from Houston Endowment, an organization should drive our strategic priorities: Arts and Parks, Civic Engagement, and PreK-12 Public Education.
Following review of the unsolicited request, program officers will either invite an application or notify you that your unsolicited request has been declined. You will typically receive a decision by email within three months.
Houston Endowment is open to providing funding for appropriate administrative expenses related to relevant operations. We ask that any indirect costs be detailed in the proposed budget and explicitly discussed with the program officer.
