The Helping Hand That Is Your OWN!!!
We are a Texas based non-profit organization, our mission is to help individuals & organizations with limited resources become self-sufficient. We do this by working with communities and organizations at the grassroots level, finding out what they need and help connect them to the resources they need to enrich their lives.

BUFTX is an administrative, programmatic and fiscally responsible proactive institution. Since 1987 we have served as a major anchor for supporting and developing funding initiatives that facilitate the positive growth and development in under served communities. We create educational programs and provide necessary resources in underprivileged areas that spur individual and community change. We believe in smart fund allocation, and therefore we employ minimal staff.
Our programming is focused into one of eight areas:
- Community Health, Preparedness & Relief
- Culture (African & African American heritage, history, fine art & storytelling)
- Youth Development
- Workforce Development/Entrepreneurship
- Technology (increasing representation of underrepresented groups, manufacturing, bridging digital divide)
- Food Security (production, processing, preserving & distribution)
- Environment and Conservation
- Social Justice
Haitian Humanitarian Work
When we saw the disturbing images and heard of the inhumane treatment of the Haitian refugees in Del Rio, Texas, we contacted our friends at the American Caribbean Chamber of Commerce to see how we could provide aid. This is a fluid situation and we will provided updates of the community partners we are working with and the aid we are providing to these families. If you’d like to make a donation, please click the link below, you’ll be taken to a secure donation portal with our partner Flipcause.
We partner with other nonprofits to help them serve their respective communities. Check out an agency spotlight below…
