The fund will be prioritized for nonprofits that help "older adults at risk of social isolation, women, children, and vulnerable populations, with special attention given to rural communities," a press release stated.

“Across the world and in Central Texas, the effect of COVID-19 on the nonprofit community is truly existential," said Edward Burger, the president and CEO of the St. David’s Foundation. "We are not just experiencing a short-term crisis, but, more profoundly, a long-term health issue with implications far beyond what any of us can imagine today."
