The Houston-based nonprofit, Texas Pride Impact Funds, announced on April 20 that it has awarded $120,000 among 26 LGBTQ organizations throughout the state as part of their COVID-19 Emergency Fund.
Four San Antonio LGBTQ nonprofits were among the recipients: MCC San Antonio ($5000), Pride Center San Antonio ($7500), UT Health’s Pride Community Clinic ($7500) and Thrive Youth Centter ($5500)
“Our primary objective was to support agencies providing a safety net to those most vulnerable to COVID-19; our emergency funds are also going to smaller organizations whose operations and revenues have been severely impacted by this crisis,” TPIF said in a press release.
According to their website, “Texas Impact Funds exists to propel the LGBTQ movement in Texas by supporting nonprofits that help thousands of our citizens across the state every day. Our work strengthens community organizations and their leaders, mobilizes donors and funders, inspires giving, and actively secures our LGBTQ community’s future for generations to come.”
