Nonprofits in Lake Highlands are among 13 organizations serving North Texas’ Asian community that received a portion of $202,000 in grants.
Orchid Giving Circle, a group out of Texas Women’s Foundation, held a virtual grantee celebration Oct. 16. The group generates grants to support social change and services benefitting North Texas’ Asian community.
“We are honored to serve the North Texas Asian community alongside other women’s giving circles who focus on communities of color that have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic,” said Orchid Giving Circle Chair Cynthia Yung in an Oct. 26 release. “Now more than ever, our collective efforts to provide grants that directly support our most vulnerable communities is crucial.”
The foundation’s African American giving circle plans to distribute grants in November.
