Steering Committee

Sponsorship and oversight of Better Together Fund is provided by its steering committee, the members of which are appointed by the Better Together Fund donors: The Dallas Foundation, LH Capital, Inc. (formerly known as LH Holdings, Inc.), Meadows Foundation, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, and Hoblitzelle Foundation.

Grants are approved by the Steering Committee and awarded through the Dallas Foundation with the anticipation of awarding $2-3 million in the first few years of the project.

Recognizing the importance of nonprofits being able to seize unpredicted catalytic moments, the Better Together Fund will consider applications on any issue, at any time until the dollars run out. For more information on how to apply, go here.
