The Rees-Jones Foundation will be closing the Urgent Funding Application on Sunday, May 17, 2020. Organizations who have not submitted their Urgent Funding Requests should do so prior to midnight on Sunday, May 17 in order to be considered.
The Foundation will continue to consider requests for ongoing programming as we transition to looking ahead at how we can best serve organizations in the long-term. If your organization is shifting to the next stage of programming as it pertains to the remainder of 2020-21, we advise you to consider submitting a regular grant application instead.*
The future of nonprofit organizations and their ability to serve the community is a priority of The Foundation. We remain committed to nonprofits in North Texas that defend the welfare of children suffering from abuse or neglect, afford relief to those facing mental health challenges, provide youth with opportunities for enrichment and character development, encourage healthy families and communities, enhance the lives of children, youth and families with disabilities, and promote the humane treatment of companion animals. To learn more about the issue areas that we fund, please visit our website.
We are grateful to all the organizations that continue to serve our community’s most vulnerable populations. It has been our great pleasure to respond to the urgent requests voiced by those nonprofits. Even as we close our urgent funding application, we will continue to monitor the health and economic situation in our community, so that we remain able to serve the families and youth of North Texas.
