Our Grantmaking Philosophy

The Boone Family Foundation likes to seed new organizations and initiatives that fill gaps of need in its three focus areas. The foundation is willing to be the first funder in new ventures, because we see it as an investment in new leadership.

The foundation considers grants for specific programs or projects, capital projects, general operations, endowment funds and multi-year gifts. We give priority to agencies and programs that:

  • Focus on systemic change
  • Re-define or re-frame the issues in ways that support and accelerate progress
  • Are collaborative in nature so that resources are shared and the impact is multiplied
  • Have sound management and are efficient with their use of funds
  • Address more than one of our focus areas

We do not consider grants for individuals, deficit financing nor proposals made within a year of an organization’s or entity’s previous request.

The Boone Family Foundation does not accept unsolicited applications.  The grant application is by invitation.   A grant application is provided via online grant system and is based on the North Texas common grant questions. The Common Grant Application  is available through Communities Foundation of Texas.
