Important Updates

Effective August 2019: Please note that Houston Endowment has transitioned to a new grants management system (and grantee portal) called GivingData.

If you have questions about an upcoming report requirement, please email or call 713-238-8150.

As part of the transition, we will be decommissioning our former grants management system, GMS, later this year.

Please note: You will not be able to view submitted applications and reports for your organization’s previously awarded grants (i.e., funding history) in the GivingData grantee portal. If you do not have copies in your records of these documents, please log in and download them from GMS as needed before November 15, 2019.
