Charitable Grants and Scholarships

The Southlake Newcomers Club supports many charitable organizations with material, financial and personal donations.  Listed below are the charities that we have supported in the past.  Each year our members work hard to provide these worthwhile organizations with support.  Click here for grant application.

For 2015-2016 proceeds from our February fundraiser went to support the I Can Still Shine Program as well as fund scholarships for graduating seniors.

The I Can Still Shine Program is a safe supportive haven for women and their children from all walks of life. They offer safety, anonymity and protection instead of victimization, domestic violence and abuse. Funds will be used to help families in the program with emergency rent, food, clothing, medical care, emergency counseling, and other emergency expenses to get them into safety.
