Greater Houston Community Foundation TX

The Greater Houston Community Foundation's (GHCF) mission is growing effective philanthropy by connecting donors to the causes they care about, providing excellent stewardship of assets entrusted to us, and convening resources to address important community needs. The Greater Houston Community Foundation began operations in 1995 and ended 2007 with almost $270 million in assets in more than 600 funds. The GHCF has three objectives: to seek funds from private sources to build a pool of permanent capital for philanthropic purposes; to allocate and distribute the income from such capital for a variety of public needs by anticipating emerging community needs; and to provide leadership for community philanthropic initiatives.
