PROFILE: Established in 2010, the Ann L. & Carol Green Rhodes Charitable Trust is the grantmaking foundation of Ann Rhodes and her mother, Carol Green Rhodes. While the foundation was initially established to carry on their love of theater and community, Ann Rhodes was also known as a passionate animal lover who fed wild animals in her backyard. Managed by Bank of America’s Texas office, the foundation funds arts, theater, human services, animal welfare, and education efforts in Texas.

The Ann L. & Carol Green Rhodes Charitable Trust broadly supports projects only in its areas of giving. It mostly supports the arts through grants to public museums, theaters, and other performing arts groups that support the local art scene. Other grants support towards local human service needs, and animal-related charities. Per Ann Rhodes’ request, the trust prioritizes groups which she supported during her lifetime.

Grants range between about $3,000 and $25,000. Learn more about this funder’s local giving by examining its recent tax records. Grantmaking focuses exclusively on Tarrant County in Texas. Past local grantees include Amphibian Productions, Casa Manna, Circle Theatre, and Baseline2Baseline.
