  • How can I give to one of the Black-led organizations listed in the GHCF Giving Guide?
    If you currently have a donor-advised fund with Greater Houston Community Foundation, you can go online to DonorSphere and make a grant recommendation. You can also go to the organization’s website (listed on the GHCF Giving Guide) and follow their instructions for how to make a donation.
  • How can a Black-led nonprofit get included in the GHCF Giving Guide?
    Reach out to us at and a Foundation staff member will follow-up with you regarding the requirements and sign-up survey. The organization must be a 501c3 or have a fiscal sponsor. Inclusion in the GHCF Giving Guide is not a guarantee for funding from Greater Houston Community Foundation or its donors.
  • Why did Greater Houston Community Foundation choose to focus on Black-led organizations?
    Black leaders bring a racial lens to their work, creating effective solutions, and striving towards equitable outcomes. Strong Black communities and institutions contribute to a more equitable future for everyone. Black-led organizations are often underfunded and face unique barriers to funding and investment.
  • Will you feature other BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) organizations in the future?
    We are taking that under advisement, as it relates to our overall equity work.
  • What is the Foundation doing internally in regards to racial equity?
    Like most organizations, we have been reflecting and actively working on our role in addressing systemic racism, beginning with us launching a new effort to develop a comprehensive, effective, and sustainable plan to address racial equity challenges within our own organization.
