The Horizon Outreach Fund is established under an agreement of Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church (SMAA) and All Angels Foundation (AAF) with the goal of sharing SMAA’s abundance through bold, life-changing, and strategic ways. The Horizon Outreach Fund (HOF) is the result of thoughtful decisions -- intentionally made through years of planning and discernment by the leadership of the Church -- to use the income from the 8111 Douglas Avenue project in a way that would have the most impact outside the Church.
The HOF benefits Dallas-area agencies and ministries with grants that align with the three guiding pillars of the All Angels Foundation (AAF) whose work impacts Discipleship (Volunteerism), Sustainability (Educational Access, Food Insecurity), and Reconciliation (Housing, Youth, Racial Justice).
The HOF is established under an agreement between SMAA and AAF, and it is managed by a committee of parishioner members who are appointed by the SMAA Vestry and the AAF, and includes the Chair of the SMAA Mission and Outreach Committee. Current members of the HOF Committee, each appointed to serve a three-year term, are Matt Waller (Chair), Tony Briggle, Bob Campbell, Eric Conner, Carol Goglia, Ben Leal, and Stacey Malcolmson, with Nita Clark and The Rev. Robin Hinkle serving as ex-officio members.
The HOF Committee has designed its grant process and strategy to be both proactive and impactful. In the initial years of the HOF, the Committee plans to identify smaller agencies (but not startups) with the potential for high impact. A grantee offering SMAA parishioner engagement is preferred but not required, and opportunities for partnering alongside other donors will be considered. Multi-year relationships (with proven metrics) are also possible.
The HOF procures recipients for grants through an invitation-only, grant-submission application. The HOF Committee reviews the applications and awards grants, upon SMAA Vestry approval, in accordance with the Committee’s guidelines and authority.
The revenues from the Church’s ground lease of its North Land for the 8111 Douglas Avenue project fund creation and growth of the HOF. The AAF holds and manages the investment of the assets of the HOF. The HOF funds its grants out of accrued income on the corpus of the HOF, thereby allowing its endowment.
