Since our first grant distribution cycle in 2014, we have provided more than $47 million in funding to 41 organizations that improve the health of Mid-Valley families. In 2022, we made $4.2 million in grants to 14 partner organizations.
In 2018, we launched an invitation-only capacity building grants program. Organizations commit to an in-depth, holistic organizational assessment process conducted by a third party identifying strengths and areas in need of strengthening. Since then, we have granted $521,898 to strengthen organizational effectiveness and efficiencies. In 2022, we launched the Nonprofit Leaders for Excellence program in partnership with Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation. The inaugural class of 12 Rio Grande Valley nonprofit leaders gather monthly to learn, network, and collaborate on leadership, governance, operations, and more.
