Types Of Investments
Because of the vast size of public and higher education, Houston Endowment’s approach  is to focus its resources on a relatively small number of opportunities that have the potential to impact student achievement on a regional scale. In addition to the restrictions described in the Application Guidelines, the Foundation generally does not support the following activities as part of its Education Program:
  • Recurring operating costs
  • Private elementary and secondary schools
  • Scholarships outside of the Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Scholars Program Click here for more information
  • Endowments
  • The following activities unless they are a component of a larger student success initiative:
    • Projects of limited scale
    • Facility and capital projects
    • Teacher/faculty professional development
    • Curriculum development

Because of Houston Endowment's focused approach within the Education Program,  the following types of grant applications are most typical:

  • Project Support
  • Innovative Approaches
  • Public Policy and Engagement
  • Research

 Grants are made less frequently in response to the following types of grant applications:

  • General Operating Support
  • Capital Improvement
  • Capacity Building
