Overview:

Lifting Up Central Texas Today and Tomorrow

In response to the current crisis and unprecedented circumstances caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, St. David’s Foundation has launched a $10 million COVID-19 Recovery Fund to support nonprofits during this challenging and uncertain time. The fund will provide grants supporting both immediate and intermediate needs of nonprofits working on the front lines to provide emergency assistance to those impacted by COVID-19 in some of Central Texas’ most vulnerable communities.

This fund is designed to complement the efforts of local health departments, public health officials, and federal subsidies – while expanding local capacity to address aspects of the outbreak as immediately and efficiently as possible. Beyond these immediate needs facing our community, we believe this public health crisis has created an extraordinary moment to call for greater and more equal health justice within our Central Texas community, and are committed to partnering with our neighbors throughout this time.

Priority populations for this fund include older adults at risk of social isolation, women, children, and vulnerable populations, with special attention given for our rural neighbors. Furthermore, the fund will prioritize work that is related to factors that directly impact health and well-being including telehealth, mental health, and youth serving organizations. Direct service providers, such as those supporting essential healthcare, human services, and food insecurity directly connected to COVID-19 are vital in this recovery effort and will also be considered for funding through this emergency relief initiative.

The Foundation will determine “organization size” based on your organization’s operational budget from the previous fiscal year. For the purposes of this fund, and as determined by GuideStar and St. David’s Foundation parameters:

  • “Small-sized” organizations are defined as those with an operating budget up to $300,000. These organizations are eligible to apply for funding up to $50,000 for 12 months.
  • “Medium-sized” organizations are defined as those with an operating budget between $300,000 to $2 million. These organizations are eligible to apply for funding up to $100,000 for 12 months.
  • “Large-sized” organizations are defined as those with an operating budget of more than $2 million. These organizations are eligible to apply for funding up to $250,000 for 12 months.k. Individuals are not eligible to apply.
