2015 - 2016 Merced Foundation Grantees

Grant recipients during 2015 - 2016 were groundbreaking for Merced Foundation and were able to teach us how much of an impact their organisations can make in peoples lives. Creating food banks, adding opportunities for further education during incarceration, working with ending homless were some of the begininging efforts that inspired Merced Foundation to keep supporting non profit organizations in Texas and to learn more about how they can continue to focus on transitional periods, enabling people to create a brighter future.
