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:
U.S. EPA Environmental Justice Update
We are almost complete with our U.S. EPA Environmental Justice Grant. To date, we have planted 250 trees, installed a garden at Wheatley High School, hosted 2 farm tours, hired 2 community members, & our program coordinator & instructor, Mr. Brew. Thanks to our partners, the City of Houston Health Department and Complete Communities, Houston Wilderness, Community Lattice, Afrocentric Communiversity, Nature Heritage Society, & Seeds of the Soil, for helping make this work successful.
Get Involved with B FTX
We’re missing U. No matter your economic level, U can add value to the lives of those we serve.
U have the heart of PHILANTHROPY but how will U go from the DESIRE to the ACTION?
The obvious way is to give money, which is GREAT and VERY APPRECIATED, but U can share other resources that U have as well!!
Our DESIRE is to use resources to make substantive changes in COMMUNITIES we SERVE! Once U are added BUFTX is complete!
We have been an anchor in the communities we serve since 1987 through small sustaining gifts. Your gifts help us change lives and communities!
