$10,000 Goal

The M.I.N.T Foundation provides our community's most vulnerable in Southern Dallas and Ellis Counties by taking on the effects of poverty and helping all those in crisis to be self-sustaining. For more than 13 years, The M.I.N.T Foundation has been a catalyst in the community to Mentor, Inspire, Nurture and Train under-served families and at-risk youth by providing a continuum of services including emergency aid, basic needs, educational services, mentoring, and community resources. The M.I.N.T Foundation impacts more than 10,500 families annually. 89 percent of the families served by The M.I.N.T Foundation are predominantly minority, but we believe in providing support to everyone in our community who are often forgotten.

Giving Activity


The mission of The MINT Foundation is to partner with individuals and families aspiring to overcome education, housing and racial barriers by providing the resources and training necessary to break the cycle of generational poverty and close the wealth gap.


Every day, we provide compassionate care to those in need through our holiday initiatives and community programs to alleviate poverty, and our food pantry and senior meals program to eradicate hunger.

With your help, we will ensure ongoing support remains available to the individuals and families we serve during their times of need. A gift to The MINT Foundation will help us sustain operations that directly impact more than 10,500 individuals annually through our holistic approach to serve a family by helping individuals become self-sufficient.

Monetary donations will help us keep our food pantry stocked with nutritional and healthy food, fresh fruits, and fresh vegetables. Your support will provide daily meals to seniors and educational programs to students who are struggling due to the COVID Slide and Summer learning loss. We have seen a substantial increase of requests for rent and utility assistance as many of our families have experienced extended periods of unemployment or increase financial strain placed on individuals providing care for family members.

Join us in the fight against poverty, preventing homelessness, and eliminating educational barriers for low income students by assisting a family with essential nutritional food, critical educational support, and emergency financial assistance.
