The Village Giving Circle

A nonprofit organization

The Village was born out of a desire to harness the collective giving power and influence of African-American women philanthropists, and in recognition of the need to provide opportunities for like-minded African-American women to form connections that enhance their civic leadership activities. Members focus their collective resources on local community organizations that serve the needs of African-American communities throughout North Texas. In addition to providing financial support to selected organizations, The Village membership seeks to elevate awareness of issues, initiatives, and efforts that affect or support African-Americans living and working in North Texas.


The mission of The Village Giving Circle at Texas Women's Foundation is to honor, sustain and expand the legacy of African-American women's philanthropy by funding organizations and initiatives that positively impact the African-American community in North Texas. The Village Giving Circle's priority activities center around researching and selecting a slate of organizations each year for designation as Village grant recipients.
