The Better Together Fund - Driving Social Change in the D/FW Metroplex

Join us for our final program of the year as we learn more about the Better Together Fund, an innovative program that was developed to encourage and support nonprofits to explore formal, long-term collaborations as a way to maximize impact and drive large scale social change. The group who created the Better Together Fund three years ago includes some of the strongest philanthropic organizations in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, including The Dallas Foundation, Lyda Hill, LH Capital Inc., The Meadows Foundation, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and Hoblitzelle Foundation. Since its launch in June 2017, the Better Together Fund has awarded over 90 grants totaling $5.2 million to 59 unique collaborations representing 262 organizations.

Those who register for this online program will receive login credentials at least two days prior to the event via email.
