Community Support

Through our club's 501(c)3 foundation, we provide funding for various non-profit organizations in Denton County.   Those receiving funding within the last two years include:

  • Denton Christian Preschool,  a United Way agency, was founded in 1970 by a group of concerned Denton citizens, representing 17 different churches in Denton who believed that the first few years of a child's life are the most important. Since then, a group of dedicated professionals and volunteers have taught, fed, loved, and nurtured three and four year olds who are considered to be at-risk for succeeding in public school without early intervention.  
  • Denton City County Day School.   The school is a partner agency with United Way of Denton County, Denton County and the City of Denton.  Its mission is to provide quality affordable childcare on a sliding scale basis (based on family size and annual family income) to families in Denton County. Parents pay a weekly fee, which is just a small portion of the cost of providing care for a child at DCCDS.
  • Denton Community Food Center.  Founded in 1974, the Food Center has had as its mission to provide food from a central community storehouse to needy individuals and families in emergency situations.  The Food Pantry is an all volunteer staffed, donor funded and supported, community based charity.
  • Denton County Friends of the Family.   Dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence, while partnering with the community to promote safety, healing, and prevention.
  • Denton Humane Society.  The Denton Humane Society is a private, not-for-profit organization chartered in 1972 for the purpose of assisting animals. In addition, DHS seeks to foster a sense of empathy and compassion among the general population toward the role and place of animals in an enlightened society.
  • Education Plus of Pilot Point.  A Christian school providing education for grades K - 12.
  • Hearts for Homes was established in the spring of 2006 as a Christian-based outreach ministry to provide no-cost home repairs to low-income elderly homeowners in the Denton County area of Texas.
  • Interfaith Ministries has been providing short-term financial assistance to Denton families since 1991. Assistance is coordinated with other agencies and is targeted to promote client self-sufficiency. Last year, more than 1,300 families were referred to Interfaith Ministries for emergency assistance.
  • Special Abilities of North Texas.  Formerly Day Stay for Adults, the Special Abilities of North Texas offers the only licensed adult daycare program in Denton County and surrounding areas serving aging persons with Alzheimer's.  It is one of very few licensed day non-profit habilitation programs for persons with disabilities.  Its mission is to provide the highest quality care, training, and support to adults with special needs, giving them opportunities to succeed in life, family, and community while offering respite to their caregivers.
