Local CRCGs may choose to pursue funding to support their work. The resources below provide information that may help your CRCG search for funding.

The Foundation Center

The Foundation Center is an independent nonprofit that helps connect philanthropists to the resources they need to succeed. They maintain a database of information on grant makers and their grants.

The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health

The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health began with the Hogg family's bequest with the goal of providing a "mental health program for the people of Texas." The mission of the foundation is to "advance mental wellness for the people of Texas as a strategic grant maker and catalyst for change." The Hogg Foundation has created a competitive program for awarding grants to fund endeavors that advance mental health.
