The annual Texas Capital Foundation Honors Grants will be a competitive grant application process, resulting in four grants. Live, Learn, and Lift grants will be $50,000 each, and the STAR grant will be $100,000. The foundation aims to fund small to mid-sized organizations that are creating and implementing innovative, sustainable solutions to serve the greatest needs of communities.

Texas Capital Foundation takes a place-based approach to grantmaking, focusing on nonprofit organizations that operate in under-resourced areas within our footprint.

Live Award

Supporting access to nutritious food.

The focus of this grant is innovative, sustainable access to fresh food for food-insecure populations. Many under-resourced communities are also food deserts: without convenient, consistent access to fresh, nutritious food. Texas Capital Foundation is looking for programs that offer creative solutions to provide access to food where it is otherwise lacking.

Learn Award

Supporting career readiness certification programs.

One of the greatest workforce needs facing our nation is skilled tradespeople, and there is a gap in access and awareness to these opportunities. Texas Capital Foundation will fund a program that offers training and certifications in ‘middle skills’, giving individuals opportunities to obtain well-paying skilled jobs with growth potential.

Through this grant, Texas Capital Foundation aims to help our most vulnerable women and girls find stability through support services and housing.

Live Award

Supporting access to healthcare in under-resourced communities. 

Recognizing that access to healthcare is essential to Live a healthy life, the Texas Capital Bank Foundation has committed to support a nonprofit that provides access to quality healthcare for under-resourced communities. There are over a million uninsured Texans living below the poverty line, making Texas the most uninsured state in the nation. That is why we provided a $50,000 Honor Award to help expand access to healthcare for those who need it most. 

Learn Award

Supporting early childhood education.

There are 2 million children under the age of 5 in Texas, and kindergarten readiness is a key component to success in a student’s life, improving high school graduation rates and future determinants of success. That’s why the foundation provided a $50,000 Honor Award to a nonprofit that serves in early childhood education, to help children Learn early and start on the path to a lifetime of opportunity

Lift Award

Supporting transitional housing and wraparound services.

Texas may make up 9% of the nation’s population, but has 34% of the nation’s chronic homeless population. And we know that when the chronically homeless receive transitional housing plus wraparound services, they are less likely to return to homelessness. The Texas Capital Bank Foundation committed to help Lift individuals out of homelessness permanently by giving a $50,000 Honor Award to a nonprofit organization that provides these services.

STAR Award

Supporting services for veterans.

Texas has the highest number of veterans in the nation, and in Texas, we honor the sacrifices made by our troops and their families. Texas Capital Bank Foundation pledged our support for our military members and veterans through our Supporting our Troops, Active and Remembered (STAR) award, which provided $100,000 to a nonprofit serving our military and/or veterans.

FAQs

    Why did you choose the specific issue areas for the Texas Capital Foundation Honors Awards?

    The Community Development team performs annual market assessments and identifies the greatest needs in our communities. It is difficult to narrow down, but the decision is data-driven and based on research. 

    How does a nonprofit organization submit for grant funding consideration?

    The grant submission portal for Texas Capital Foundation Honors Awards will go live on January 2, 2023 and will be posted on this site and on social media. All qualified submissions will be read and considered.

    The Community Impact Grant process is a different grant program and is by invitation only. Selected nonprofits will be invited to submit a Letter of Inquiry in March. To learn more about the invitation process, contact [email protected]  

    How can a nonprofit qualify for a grant?

    Texas Capital Foundation funds Texas-based nonprofit organizations that provide direct services to low-and-moderate income communities in the markets where the bank operates, under the pillars of Live, Learn, and Lift. All inquiries for grants are read and considered, but not all qualified submissions can be funded. The decisions are always difficult and many factors are used in the decision making process.

    Does Texas Capital Foundation work with independent grant writers?

    No. Texas Capital Foundation has a grant application to be filled out by the designated nonprofit personnel.

    Where can I view the Texas Capital Foundation's Form 990 and 501c3 application?
