AUSTIN, TEXAS (July 6, 2021) – Legacy Collective, a giving community dedicated to funding nonprofits addressing systemic issues with sustainable, innovative solutions, today announces that it has given four additional grants from its Texas Disaster Relief Fund set up to help Texans in need after winter storm Uri. Sustainable Food Center received $27,500; The Settlement Home for Children received $50,000, The Family Place received $25,000 and Wichita Falls Area Food Bank received $25,000. This $127,500, combined with the first round two rounds of grants of $450,000, brings the grand total to $577,500.

More information about these organizations, how they’ll use the funds and the impact that Legacy Collective donors have made can be found on our Texas Disaster Relief Fund page.

“The generosity of individual donors and organizations from across the country and around the world supporting Texans after the storm is inspiring,” says Erin Arnheim, Legacy Collective CEO. “The donations just kept coming! We’re excited to be able to give these additional grants so that relief work that still remains can be addressed.”

Donations from the third round of grants from the Texas Disaster Relief Fund benefited the following organizations:

  • Sustainable Food Center: For over 45 years, SFC has supported local, small to mid-sized farms achieve their business and regenerative farming goals so they can thrive, while increasing access to healthy, local food throughout the supply chain. Fifty percent of relief funding from Legacy Collective will go directly toward Black and Brown farmer relief. Additionally, SFC will use the grant to fund a staff member to provide ongoing and direct support to farmers engaged in the Farmers of Color Relief and Resiliency Fund and disaster relief efforts.
  • The Settlement Home for Children serves individuals who have experienced severe emotional trauma, abuse and neglect. The grant will be used for repairs on their Clothes Closet, Warehouse and Residential Cottage, which all experienced flooding and structural damage.
  • The Family Place has been helping victims of family violence in North Texas since 1978. They provide everything needed to help victims become survivors. The grant will help with repairs to their campus from the storm, as well as associated costs such as meals and housing for clients needing to be relocated due to damage to their campus.
  • Wichita Falls Area Food Bank unites its community to fight hunger with food, education and advocacy. The Legacy Collective grant will restock and replenish the food bank from the disaster in February to prepare for the next disaster need.
