TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The Women’s Fund of Smith County has announced the four charitable organizations will be the recipients of grants to continue helping East Texans.

Executive Director Zoe Lawhorn says their grant committee reviews applications all year from organizations in the Tyler area to narrow it down. Then the membership votes on the four grant winners to receive a share of $247,500. She said these are impact grants that enrich the lives of women and children.

This year’s winners are: The Mentoring Alliance, Cook Children’s Health Foundation, Next Step Community Solutions , and CASA for Kids of East Texas.

Lawhorn said the funding is focused on new programs and expansion of existing programs based on what the underserved groups in the community need. The Women’s Fund is thrilled to be a part of helping them do that work, Lawhorn said.
