How you can help your fellow Houstonians
As Ashley Deutser mentions in her article below, "...we live in a city that doesn't ask the question whether or not to give. The questions that are most often asked...'When?', 'How?' and 'Where?'"
Now is the time. Some of you may have been affected by the recent storms; many of you may know others who suffered losses. All of us at GHCF stand with you, and have the answers to "How?" and "Where?"
Our Donor Services Department is standing by to assist you with your grant-making needs. If you are a GHCF donor, you can make a grant request through DonorXpress. If you are a donor at another Community Foundation, you can make a grant request through your Donor Services Department. If you are not a donor or if you wish to give directly to one of the above organizations, you can click on their respective links.
Please check with us periodically, as we plan to update this information when we know of additional opportunities.
We are proud to be part of this great city.
Mantle of Civic Duty Falls to Houston Youth

Fortunately, we live in a city that doesn't ask the question whether or not to give.
The questions that are more often asked in Houston are: "When?", "How?" and "Where?"
The generosity that exists in our city is rooted in the history of Houston. We are who we are because of those who came before us. Philanthropic leaders and families, such as the Jones family, the Cullen family, the Cockrell family and many others, have had a vision and passion for our city. Their contributions have not only made an indelible impact on our city, but also set the foundation for my generation.
