Our city's current needs far exceed the Foundation's grantmaking resources. Through our Impact Investment Fund we invest a portion of our permanent assets in innovative solutions to pressing needs. Learn about the Impact Investment Fund

We also help nonprofits invest for the future efficiently. More than 70 local nonprofits depend on us to nurture and grow their reserve funds or endowments. We can help you inform your supporters about how they can turn their passion for your work into significant gifts that ensure you can help future Central Texans.
