General Funding Sources
For more than 50 years, the Texas Grants Resource Center (TGRC) has served as a bridge between the grant-seeking and the grant-making communities. The TGRC is a unit within the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE) at the University of Texas at Austin.
The TGRC offers consultations and orientations for funding research, for both nonprofit organizations and individuals. Because of the availability of electronic information on state and federal grant opportunities, the TGRC emphasizes private sector funding options and information (i.e., private foundations and corporate foundations/direct giving programs). It has little on-site information about small business startups.
In keeping with its original commitment to make information accessible to all, the TGRC is open to everyone, free of charge.
Texas Rural Funders (TRF) is dedicated to working with rural communities to develop and implement solutions to the unique challenges they face. Each of our members is committed to the long-term success of the state and together, we bring a breadth of experience, resources and influence that none of us could provide alone. Texas will succeed only if rural Texas succeeds. And we are committed to doing our part to make that happen.
