The  Texas Women’s Foundation (formerly Dallas Women’s Foundation) has announced its community grants totaling $635,500 to 24 organizations that work to improve the lives of women and girls in North Texas. North Texas community grants represent about 10 percent of the Foundation’s overall $6.3 million investment in 2019 in research, advocacy, programs and grants to advance opportunities for Texas women and girls.

Roslyn Dawson Thompson, Texas Women’s Foundation president and CEO, said, “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.” publishes every week.
