Healthcare

Texas Equal Access Fund

TEA Fund provides financial assistance to people living in north, east, and west Texas who want an abortion and cannot afford it. Almost half of our clients are already parenting at least one child and 70% of the people we fund are people of color. Quite a few of our callers are from rural communities and have to travel to access abortion. Some are students. Some have Medicaid, others have private insurance, and some have no health care coverage at all. All are facing financial barriers to abortion access
Texas Equal Access Fund believes that when it comes to abortion, there is no choice if there is no access. Restrictions on abortion access and funding are discriminatory because they especially burden people with low incomes, young people, people in rural areas, and people of color. We oppose all efforts to restrict abortion rights and are committed to fighting for access to abortion for all. We believe that abortion is a fundamental feature of health care, and that it is the responsibility of government to cover abortion as part of social safety net programs. However, in the absence of government funding, we believe it is our duty to act now to support those who want abortions and cannot afford them.

Education

West End School

West End School provides a safe and structured environment for boys in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 8th in which academic rigor, character development, and responsible action establish the foundation for a purposeful life.

Arts

Greenwich Village Orchesta

The Greenwich Village Orchestra was founded in 1986 by a group of musicians from the New York Metropolitan area. We are a 70-person community orchestra made up of accountants, actors, artists, attorneys, carpenters, editors, physicians, professors, programmers, retirees, riverboat gamblers, scientists, secretaries, students, and teachers. For over thirty years, the Greenwich Village Orchestra has had a single purpose: to bring the best possible performances of great music to our audience. The GVO is committed to making music at the highest possible level and dedicated to enriching the lives of our players and our audience. Our performances are emotionally charged, exhilarating experiences that truly delight our audiences and the performers alike.

Healthcare

GIST Cancer Research Fund

As with any form of cancer, research is the cornerstone to finding a cure for Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) Cancer. Cancer centers and institutions across the United States are lacking the funds that are needed to increase the understanding of what makes GIST so rare. Scientific study has to help advance the diagnosis and treatment of GIST in children and adults. Together, the GIST Cancer Research Fund team is committed to eradicating this devastating cancer through increased awareness and furthering the cause for research that is absolutely essential for GIST’s cure.

In Crisis

Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center

Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center (DARCC) is committed to the prevention of sexual violence in north Texas and compassionately serving those impacted by it
Our staff and trained advocates are available to help those impacted by sexual violence navigate the journey of healing in a safe and confidential environment. Sexual violence doesn’t discriminate. We serve all individuals who have been impacted by sexual violence with respect and compassion. This includes women, men, the LGBTQ+ community, immigrants, refugees, and all other survivors of sexual violence.

DARCC’s comprehensive program includes counseling, crisis intervention and advocacy for those whose lives have been affected by sexual violence. DARCC is also committed to social change through prevention, education and outreach programs to the community.

Animal Welfare

Compassion Without Borders

Compassion without Borders brings brighter futures to animals in need on both sides of the border. We focus our efforts where the need is the greatest, but where animals are the very least likely to be helped due to financial, geographic, and cultural barriers.

Our programs include a dog rescue program from Mexico and the Central Valley, along with free veterinary wellness and spay/neuter clinics in underserved communities on both sides of the border. We also have a humane euthanasia program in Mexico, where we are actively working to stop electrocution, a common method of killing unwanted animals south of the border.

Children

New Incentives

New Incentives’ All Babies program operates in North West Nigeria (Jigawa, Katsina, and Zamfara states), a remote, poor region with one of the lowest childhood vaccination rates in the world. In partnership with local government partners, we provide small cash transfers to caregivers when their infants receive each of four vaccines: BCG (against tuberculosis), PENTA (against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenzae type b), PCV (against pneumococcal disease), and MCV (against measles). These vaccinations are part of the routine schedule for infant immunizations in Nigeria and are provided at no cost to the caregiver through government supported clinics. In addition, New Incentives addresses other barriers to immunization coverage, supporting partners to increase vaccine supply and increase awareness of the benefits of vaccines. We are constantly using data and evidence to inform our model and our daily operations.

In Crisis

Hellen Keller International

Since we were founded in 1915, our work has evolved from providing assistance to soldiers blinded during their service in World War I. Today, our programs prioritize preventing and treating vision loss and blindness—as well as addressing major global health problems such as malnutrition and neglected diseases that threaten sight, productivity, and well-being.

In Africa, Asia, Europe, and the U.S., Helen Keller International’s proven, science-based programs empower people to create opportunities in their own lives and build lasting change. We build the capacity of local government, non-profit and private sector systems and infrastructure, and promote the development of sustained, large scale programs that deliver effective solutions to preventable vision loss and malnutrition.
