Austin, TX – Texas Mutual Insurance Company recently announced a donation of $100,000 to Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT), the state’s largest community foundation. Texas Mutual is committed to supporting community resiliency after a natural disaster strikes. The donation, which will go toward CFT’s Dallas Tornado Recovery & Relief Fund, is in response to several tornadoes that moved through the Dallas area on Oct. 20.
“We are committed to ensuring the strength of Texas and responding in times of need,” said Ron Simmons, chairman of Texas Mutual’s board. “CFT is a trusted partner that shares our values and will help deliver long-term resources to the North Texas communities devastated by the tornadoes.”
CFT was founded over 65 years ago and works with thousands of nonprofits, making more than 3,000 grants each year to support the North Texas region. CFT has awarded more than $1.9 billion in grants since its founding in 1953.
“We’re grateful for Texas Mutual’s donation, which will allow us to continue to serve our community and ensure that our partners can continue to deliver the much-needed support to rebuild,” said Dave Scullin, CEO of CFT.
Texas Mutual is committed to building a stronger, safer Texas through its community program, TXM for Texas. A core pillar of the program is disaster response and preparedness. In addition to this $100,000 grant to CFT, Texas Mutual will distribute grants to policyholders in need.
