Grant Workshop

Speedway Children's Charities held an in-person workshop at Texas Motor Speedway on January 29th. If you were not able to attend this workshop, you unfortunately are ineligible to apply for a 2020 grant. Our 2021 grant workshop will be held at the end of January 2021.

Every year, Speedway Children's Charities hosts a mandatory grant workshop to answer your questions associated with our Partner and Founders grant applications. Our hope is all organizations that attend our workshop will leave with a better understanding of the Speedway Children's Charities grant application, process, and requirements.

If you would like to be added to our database to receive updates regarding the SCC Grant process, please contact us at or 817-215-8421.

Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from the Texas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. As you may know, we are a foundation dedicated to helping children. We produce and coordinate various events throughout the year to raise funds to distribute to worthy non-profit organizations in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant Counties who are meeting the needs of children.

To apply for a grant, the applicant organization must meet the following requirements:

  • Organization must be a 501 (c) 3 non-profit entity.
  • Serves children in Collin, Dallas, Denton and/or Tarrant counties.
  • Service provided to children falls within the mission of Speedway Children's Charities: educational, medical, social and/or financial need.
  • Organizations interested in applying for funding must have had a representative attend our Grant Workshop.

The Texas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities offers two types of grant funding.

Partner Grant

(First Round RFP available online February 10th-21st)

Partner grant requests much be made for a specific project. Requests for capital projects or general operating funds will not be accepted.

Partner grant requests should fall between $5,000 and $25,000. Requests under $5,000 or over $25,000 will not be accepted.

Founders Grant

(First Round RFP available online February 10th-21st)

Founders Grant requests should range between $125,000 and $150,000. Requests outside of this range will not be accepted.

Capital projects WILL BE considered for funding through a Founders Grant.

*** The 2020 Founders Grant Program has been suspended. Please check back in January 2021 for information on the next Founders Grant cycle ***

Please note: An organization may apply for both grants available through Speedway Children's Charities at Texas Motor Speedway; however, if a Founders Grant is awarded, said organization will be disqualified from consideration for a Partner Grant.

Speedway Children's Charities at Texas Motor Speedway will be hosting a grant workshop in January. We are hosting this workshop in an effort to help answer any questions in regards to our Founders and Partner grant application and process.

Organizations interested must have a representative view this workshop. Organizations that do not view it will not be eligible to apply for Speedway Children's Charities at Texas Motor Speedway grants for fiscal year 2020.

Please note that this workshop is intended to answer any questions an applicant organization may have about our unique grant processes. We respectfully request that you come prepared with questions. Once this workshop concludes, we will not be available for one-on-one communication on individual applications.

Once again thank you again for your interest in Speedway Children's Charities at Texas Motor Speedway. We wish you only the best in all your endeavors on behalf of children.
