Help us Champion Collin County!

The Fund for Collin County was established with a commitment of $500,000 of seed funding by Communities Foundation of Texas to provide support for nonprofit organizations addressing the most pressing needs and promising opportunities for the communities of Collin County.

 

Building this fund together will help ensure there will always be dedicated charitable resources to provide support and funding for our most vulnerable citizens for generations to come.

The Fund for Collin County Responds to COVID-19

The Fund for Collin County has responded to the immediate needs in Collin County with the announcement of the following 2020 grant awards.

Delighted-to-Doula.jpgDelighted to Doula Birth Services
Delighted to Doula Birth Services aims to eliminate maternal mortality and address racial disparities in infant mortality in Collin County through education and postpartum support. Their program, Goal366 focuses on professional assistance, education, and supplies to ensure the success and safety of every mother and child. Funding will be used to ensure every mother abiding by shelter in place orders is provided food, formula, baby supplies, virtual conferencing services, and transportation vouchers.

Hope-Clinic-McKinney.pngHope Clinic of McKinney
The Hope Clinic of McKinney partners with over 100 community volunteers to provide compassionate healthcare and resources to the medically underserved populations. The Hope Clinic is a free medical, vision and behavioral health clinic serving the uninsured McKinney residents with household incomes at or below 200% of the federal poverty line. Their hope is to meet the increased need by expanding operations to serve clients six days a week.

The mission of The Storehouse of Collin County is to feed, clothe and care as neighbors in one community. The Storehouse of Collin County offers three programs to their clients, through food pantry—Seven Loaves, a clothing closet—Joseph’s Coat, and mentorship training—Project Hope. The Storehouse provides food distribution to anyone who lives in Collin County. Operations have increased over 103% to meet the need of those affected by the pandemic.
