Port of Corpus Christi accepting community sponsorship applications for 2021

Continuing its commitment to regional social programmes, the Port of Corpus Christi is opening its biannual call for community sponsorship funding applications from the coastal bend not-for-profit and charitable organisations.

Non-profits seeking funding for programmes or events that require funding between July 1 and December 31, 2021, may submit applications to the Port Authority between April 1 and April 30, 2021.

The Port of Corpus Christi’s ongoing commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance leadership continues with its available funding to programmes that benefit the Coastal Bend communities in which the port serves.

It said: “The Port of Corpus Christi commission and staff recognise these much-needed funds enable recipients to fulfil their missions, which have been particularly challenging in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreover, this financial support is a thoughtful way for the port authority to keep its dollars local as it reinvests in the surrounding communities that continue to recover from the economic impacts of COVID-19.”

“Though we are seeing great progress in the fight against the scourge of COVID-19, we are still not out of the woods, and our social programme partners are still hurting for much needed funds to continue their great efforts to improve the communities in which we live and work,” said Sean Strawbridge, chief executive officer of the Port of Corpus Christi.
