Orchid Giving Circle at Texas Women’s Foundation celebrated its fifth year by distributing $219,500 in grants to 14 nonprofit organizations to benefit the North Texas Asian community.
Orchid Giving Circle at Texas Women’s Foundation is a group of Asian women who work together, pool their resources and leverage their networks to award community grants that support social change and services benefitting the North Texas Asian community.
Included was a $10,000 donation to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Fort Worth for its Refugee Match Grant Program.
Orchid members, representing a wide range of Asian cultures, ages, ethnicities and professions, have a goal to increase awareness of the local Asian population, their community needs and philanthropic opportunities, the organization said in a news release.
Orchid Giving Circle started in 2015 with a handful of members and has grown to nearly 60 members, said Cynthia Yung, Orchid Giving Circle Co-chair.
“Our grants help support the underserved community of North Texas Asians, and for that, I’m thankful to all of you who support us with your treasure, talent and time,”’ she said.
