The Skokos Foundation invests in visionary leaders of nonprofit organizations that provide impactful programs and services to individuals with sustainable minimal overhead, integrity, transparency, and collaboration.
We believe there is a direct connection between a nonprofit's results and the strength of its leadership. This leadership includes staff as well as its board of directors. We take an all-encompassing look at the people, infrastructure, values, past and present practices, and policies that the staff and board embrace and promote for organizational success. We realize that a cross-section of stakeholders, rather than isolated efforts by a single organization or individual, result in more effective means of tackling an issue. We give priority to nonprofit organizations in Dallas, Texas, and to those in Arkansas which have directly impacted the founders’ lives.
The Skokos Foundation receives considerably more requests for funding than we can support. Only those requests that effectively address our grantmaking guidelines, come from eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, and reflect our Board of Directors’ priorities will be considered.
