The Rees-Jones Foundation officially closed the Urgent Funding Application on Sunday, May 17, 2020. The Foundation will continue to consider requests for ongoing programming as we transition to looking ahead at how we can best serve organizations in the long-term.
The future of nonprofit organizations and their ability to serve the community is a priority of The Foundation. We remain committed to nonprofits in North Texas that defend the welfare of children suffering from abuse or neglect, afford relief to those facing mental health challenges, provide youth with opportunities for enrichment and character development, encourage healthy families and communities, enhance the lives of children, youth and families with disabilities, and promote the humane treatment of companion animals. To learn more about the issue areas that we fund, please visit our website.
We are grateful to all the organizations that continue to serve our community’s most vulnerable populations. It has been our great pleasure to respond to the urgent requests voiced by those nonprofits. Even though our urgent funding application is now closed, we will continue to monitor the health and economic situation in our community, so that we remain able to serve the families and youth of North Texas.
At the beginning of June, we will share a blog post recapping the truly inspiring work of our nonprofit partners during the COVID-19 outbreak.
