Community Services

The Foundation is committed to supporting and improving the quality of life for residents of Kleberg and its adjoining counties of South Texas. Funding is focused on this geographic region, but organizations outside this geographic region with a history of previous funding may apply.

Funding areas include health, education and social services. We support:

  • Health Services – organizations that improve health outcomes or provide access to high-quality healthcare in the focus region, including preventive, diagnostic, treatment, recovery and rehabilitative services.
  • Education – organizations that demonstrate innovative models of learning that help their students build character and develop their intellectual, physical and creative abilities to the highest level so they can thrive in today’s global world.
  • Social Services –organizations that provide services to low income children and families, counseling, advocacy, intervention and treatment services to prevent disease, promote healthy lifestyles and development, and encourage self-sufficiency.

Community services organizations in the geographic region may apply once a year. A request letter signed by the President or CEO is required. Before you begin your application, we request you review the grant guidelines and the PDF documents below to be sure to submit a complete application:
