    A Small Step Toward Greater Racial Equity At Greater Houston Community Foundation, we recognize how much work there is to do in regards to creating awareness around racial injustice and we are taking the necessary steps towards listening, learning, and creating meaningful, lasting change. Within this guide, we define “Black-led” as an organization that is led by a Black CEO or executive director. Although we humbly realize that this guide does not fully reflect all of the impactful work that’s being done by local Black communities, we hope that it can act as an ever-evolving resource to increase giving to Black-led organizations over time. About Greater Houston Community Foundation Greater Houston Community Foundation inspires and creates meaningful and positive change with our donors and for our community. During this historic and important time of reflection in our country, Greater Houston Community Foundation (Foundation) is taking action to elevate awareness around equity and racial justice. There is much work to do and we are beginning a more intentional journey of listening, learning, and creating meaningful change. ​ The Giving Guide was created thanks to the support of many leaders in the philanthropic community and Foundation team research.
