Addison’s nonprofit organizations help the community thrive, which is why the City Council makes them a priority. Recently, the Addison City Council approved grants to several non-profit organizations in town, including several arts organizations.
At its Oct. 13 meeting, the Council formally approved Fiscal Year 2021 funding for the following organizations:
- Addison Arbor Foundation: $65,000
- Metrocrest Services: $66,120
- Dallas Cat Lady: $5,000
- Metrocare Services: $2,500
- Outcry Theatre: $2,500
- Family Place: $2,500
- Woven Health Clinic: $5,000
- WaterTower Theatre: $375,000
Each fiscal year, the City Council allocates funding for nonprofit organizations that provide services to the Addison community. Interested organizations are given an opportunity to submit a request for funds during the budget process that are evaluated by town staff and appointed Council Member Liaisons. Town staff also review all applicable financials and verifies the organization is in good standing with both the IRS and Texas Secretary of State.
All the agreements, except Metrocare Services, were approved as part of the Consent Agenda and not discussed by Council. You can watch Council’s Metrocare Services discussion here.
