Our History

Community Ventures began in Houston in 2015 by individuals inspired to give back in ways that meant more to non-profits than financial funding alone.

Houston’s philanthropic landscape is dominated by foundations but this does not mean we should expect them to take on the responsibility of social change by themselves. At Community Ventures, we found that we can activate the larger community by pooling our resources and connecting individuals with meaningful giving opportunities that result in sustainable social impact.
