United Way Announces Sixth Round of Grants to 31 Local Nonprofits

Today, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas awarded grants to 31 local nonprofits (see list of recipients below) totaling $237,000. Through our Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund, we continue to invest in community partners who are both addressing immediate relief for North Texans, including access to food, shelter, healthcare, and emergency financial assistance and planning for longer-term recovery through education, income and health initiatives.

Since launching the United Way of Metropolitan Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund in mid-March, we have invested more than $2.9 million in 216 nonprofit organizations providing critical resources for our community. United Way is grateful for the leadership and generosity of our corporate and philanthropic partners and donors who have made this possible. With the grant investments made to date, together, we will impact the lives of over 1 million North Texans.

As we move into May, United Way will transition funding from shorter-term response to mid-to-long-range recovery and rebuilding initiatives. We will continue to focus on the education, income and health challenges that affect all areas of our community.

As of this week, 881 nonprofits have requested over $35 million in emergency funding through the North Texas Cares online grant application, with hundreds of applications still in process. Collectively, the North Texas Cares partners have granted $20.5 million to nonprofits supporting the immediate needs of North Texas most adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Our team will continue to work with community leaders and partner organizations to provide funding recommendations as we adapt to the evolving needs of the community. Support for recovery and rebuilding will be critical in the weeks, months, and even years ahead.

As we come together to lift up our community, United Way remains committed to strengthening income, education and health to build a better future for all North Texans. We hope you will join us in lifting up our community through a contribution to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund.

About North Texas Cares

North Texas Cares logo

United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, Communities Foundation of Texas, and The Dallas Foundation, joined by more than two dozen philanthropic funding organizations, launched North Texas Cares, which enables local nonprofits to ask for emergency financial help from all participating organizations through a streamlined online grant application.

The magnitude of this pandemic calls for innovation and proactive, strategic collaboration—at a rapid pace. North Texas Cares is the social impact community’s collective response to addressing both immediate and long-term needs of our most vulnerable populations.

Together we are enabling efficient and timely access to philanthropic dollars, ensuring those resources reach the individuals and families most in need, without placing an undue burden on the nonprofit organizations providing them.
