It Takes All of Us. The Inspire Change Grant, supported in partnership with the Houston Texans, ConocoPhillips, Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages and Miller Lite, was created to fund programs, seed projects and create partnerships that support social justice and racial equity efforts in Houston. The Texans and partners will award $400,000 in grants to nonprofits and educational programs that are working to make a difference in Houston. An advisory committee will select grant recipients who work for change or provide assistance in the following areas:
Criminal justice reform
Workforce and economic development (specifically Minority/Women-owned Business Enterprises)
Anti-bias/anti-racism, diversity training and educational programs for youth
Educating youth on the histories of minority groups in America
Support for children with incarcerated parents
Access to mental health support in underserved communities/schools
To be eligible to receive a grant, the recipient organization must be a nonprofit entity qualified under IRC Section 501(c)(3) as a public charity, an educational institution or school, and be nonpartisan.
