Administered through the Coastal Bend Community Foundation, the Coastal Bend Day of Giving is a one day only, 24 hour, online donation event offering the unique opportunity to make gifts that are doubled to local nonprofits serving the Coastal Bend area’s neediest. This year, 25 matching funders have pledged $900,000 in matching grants, allowing each nonprofit’s gifts to double, up to $18,000 for each 50 participating nonprofit, each raising at least $36,000 in just 24 hours!

In the past nine giving days, the Coastal Bend community has come together to raise almost $12 million. The 10th Coastal Bend Day of Giving raised a record-breaking total of $2.56 million dollars!

Right Here in the Coastal Bend.



Welcome to the Coastal Bend Community Foundation (CBCF) website. We are a tax-exempt, non-profit foundation serving the seven-county region of the Texas Coastal Bend. We formed to help donors “pool” their charitable contributions and leverage that giving to benefit worthy causes in the community.

Here you will find information about us and the causes and people we support. You will also find information on applying for grants and scholarships, the benefits of partnering with CBCF and how to become a donor.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.


Current Coastal Bend Community Foundation Fund Holders

As part of our continuing efforts to provide the best resources to our fund holders, the Foundation is implementing “DonorCentral”- an online portal to facilitate fund access for donors/fund holders. This new online portal will provide more immediate access to fund data. It will allow you to view fund balances, obtain fund statements, make grant recommendations(if applicable), and review fund history.

We are pleased to be able to provide this tool. Thank you for your support of this upgrade and as always, thank you for your continued support of Coastal Bend Community Foundation and our community.
