Grantor Toolkit


I’m Madeline Tinker, the Development Coordinator of Grants at The Children’s Assessment Center, and the first thing I want to do is thank you for taking the time to learn more about The CAC. Grants are an essential funding component of our organization’s success, with philanthropic, federal, state, and local grants supporting our special programs, client services, and daily operations. Since joining The CAC, I’ve been privileged to watch our grant funding ensure cost-free services to clients and families at The CAC. Grant opportunities from the amount of $5,000 to $1m + all serve a purpose at The CAC and are handled with the utmost care. In addition to grant funding, we also manage grants and serve as administrators for other opportunities. We are open to partnering with other advocacy centers and agencies or serve as a resource for Houston-area organizations that are interested in supporting the populations we serve.
