As the U.S. commitment to Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom continues, the toll on military personnel and their families continues to grow. Texas military bases and personnel play an increasingly large role in the conflict and the need for support for them and their families grows each day.
In 2007, The Iraq-Afghanistan Deployment Impact Fund at the Los Angeles-based California Community Foundation awarded $15 million to three Texas community foundations to support the efforts of nonprofit organizations that provide needed services in Texas to active and former military personnel serving in Iraq and/or Afghanistan and their families.
In August 2008, the Iraq Afghanistan Deployment Impact Fund of the California Community Foundation provided additional funding of $15 million to The Dallas Foundation and San Antonio Area Foundation to continue this work in the state of Texas.
Texas Resources for Iraq-Afghanistan Deployment (TRIAD) Funds were established at The Dallas Foundation, the Permian Basin Area Foundation, and the San Antonio Area Foundation. Through this statewide collaborative, the foundations collectively awarded close to $28 million in support of agencies serving OEF/OIF families.
