Sept/Oct Grant Updates: First UU Church, Mission Trail Rotary, Najim and Federal Awards Announced


Healthy Futures of Texas is excited to announce the following gifts made to our agency in September and October. Three of them are local San Antonio gifts, and another one is related to a state-wide project.


Mission Trail Rotary in San Antonio has donated $1,500 to support our curriculum development projects where we're engaging youth as co-authors. These funds are provided through a bike ride event they put on to raise funds, and they are seeking riders! More info at m2msa.org See the photo below of our team accepting the award from their staff.



First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Antonio has awarded Healthy Futures $1,000 as part of its Community Responsibility Endowment Fund. These funds will be used to support our new Zoom Room for remote and virtual implementation. We are very grateful for this gift from our friends at First UU. The members of the church are consistent, generous donors as individuals in addition to their support through CREF.


The Najim Charitable Foundation has been a generous supporter of our work for years, and this year they have increased their investment in us it $30,000. This is a gift for which our team is very grateful - the Najim Foundation is a renowned philanthropist presence in our community, and the portfolio of agencies they support is incredible company to be in. The gift supports our sex ed work in San Antonio.


The Texas Foster Youth Health Initiative (TFYHI), in partnership with the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, the Texas Alliance of Child and Family Services, and the Texas Institute for Child and Family Wellbeing at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at UT Austin, will establish, fund, coordinate, and support a multidisciplinary network of community partners to develop and test cutting edge sexual health interventions for youth and their caregivers. The community partners include The Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and the North Texas Alliance to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy in Teens (Ntarupt). Healthy Futures is proud to be a part of this project, which expands our staff by three people and expands our work to the Rio Grande Valley.
