The (NHF) was formed by Dr. J.T. "Dock" Houk in 1994. It became one of the largest donor-advised funds in the country.

On August 16, 2006, in response to the Pension Protection Act of 2006, NHF changed the way they made grants from their umbrella projects to charitable programs. NHF informed all its projects that only organizations would be able to continue to receive grants from NHF.

In January 2009, the NHF filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection while appealing a lost lawsuit. During this bankruptcy process, donor advised foundations were not able to disburse funds to other non-profits.

In late 2009, NHF emerged from bankruptcy and is in the process of fulfilling its reorganization plan.
