About this funder:
Lifting Up Central Texas Today and Tomorrow
A recent survey of more than 450 local nonprofits showed that more than 69% have experienced disrupted client and community services, with another 52% indicating a significant increase in demand for their services amid COVID-19. The needs of those supporting our most vulnerable populations – who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 – are more critical now than ever before.
Across all of the Foundation’s goals and principles, we are guided by a commitment to achieve health equity. This requires the prioritization of available assets to those most in need in order to help remove barriers and provide relief where vital resources may be lacking. We remain committed to listening, learning and adapting our ways of working based on the ever-evolving needs of the community. We extend our sincerest thanks to those working on the front lines to serve our communities and provide emergency assistance and critical resources. Together, we stand strong as a community as we lift up Central Texas today and tomorrow and look ahead toward recovery and rebuilding.
While the Fund seeks to strengthen and support all of the Central Texas community, particular attention and priority will be given to supporting communities who are inequitably bearing the brunt of this crisis. This includes serving:
- People of color
- Refugees and immigrants (regardless of legal status)
- People experiencing homelessness
- People with disabilities
- LGBTQ communities
