The Texas Women’s Foundation recently announced its community grants totaling $635,500 to 24 organizations that seek to improve the lives of women and girls in north Texas.
The community grants represent about 10% of the foundation’s $6.3 million investment in 2019 in research, advocacy, programs, and grants to advance opportunities for women and girls in the state. The foundation’s community grants are a competitive grant process. Grants are distributed through the foundation’s operating funds raised from a broad base of donors, complemented by funds from cooperative granting partners, such as Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) and various foundation donor-advised funds.
“During this north Texas community grant cycle, we expanded our geographic area to include Tarrant County. We welcomed two new grantees from Tarrant County: The Ladder Alliance and Methodist Justice Ministry. We also added four new community grant partners from Dallas County: Junior Players Guild, Momentous Institute, Pamper Lake Highlands and Poetic. Through these partnerships, we are strengthening women and girls in the areas of education, housing, leadership and workforce development, and as a result, our entire community becomes stronger,” Texas Women’s Foundation president and CEO Roslyn Dawson Thompson said.
The grantees include the following:
Agape Resource & Assistance Center Inc.
Bridge Breast Center Inc.
