About this funder:




  • The Foundation accepts grant applications throughout the year. However, it is a good idea to submit your application at least 4 months before the funding is needed.
  • In addition to the locations listed above, the Foundation considers requests from Christian non-profit organizations working internationally in the Foundation’s areas of giving, by invitation only. 

Founded in 2006 by Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones, The Rees-Jones Foundation is a private foundation that works with non-profit organizations, primarily in North Texas, to serve others and improve their quality of life and life circumstances in tangible ways.

The vision of The Rees-Jones Foundation is that the love of Christ is experienced in tangible ways by those in our community who are disadvantaged or who are suffering spiritually, physically, or emotionally.

The mission of the Foundation is to serve God by serving others, sharing His resources in ways that provide opportunities for the disadvantaged, relief for the suffering, and encouragement in the growth and well-being of children and families in our community.

What We Fund

Community Benefit

The Foundation selectively supports efforts that enhance the quality of life of North Texas residents, especially initiatives that help economically underserved communities. The Foundation also funds leading animal welfare organizations that are a resource to the community and promote the ethical and humane treatment of companion animals.

Human Services For Children, Youth, And Families

The Foundation supports efforts to break the harmful cycle of poverty and abuse, and develop stability and wholeness in peoples’ lives. This includes alleviating conditions that are harmful for families or place children at risk of maltreatment. A priority for the Foundation is protecting children and youth who have been abused or neglected and are in need of substitute care or adoption. The Foundation also supports programs that improve conditions for children and youth who deal with physical disabilities.

Mental Health

The Foundation supports mental health services in the community that include increasing access to mental health care through counseling, therapy, and treatment, particularly for children and youth. The Foundation also funds efforts that enrich the people’s lives who are living with illnesses and disorders by providing education, as well as effective community and mental health services.

Youth Development

The Foundation supports organizations that cultivate youth character and personal responsibility by providing intellectually and socially enriching experiences. With a focus on underserved youth, the Foundation is particularly interested in funding efforts that expand children’s scope of opportunity and experience through education, mentoring, camping, and formative experiences.


The Foundation selectively supports a portfolio of US based international projects. These projects range from surgeries for youth with injuries and disabilities, to water projects for remote communities impacted by insufficient resources, to justice initiatives for families impacted by bonded labor and forced prostitution. International grants are considered by invitation only.
