Donations & Fundraising

While many of our programs are funded through grants, Meals On Wheels receives only partial funding and the Cancer Resource Center receives no federal funds at all. Donations and fundraising help us to cover the areas where federal monies are either limited, or not provided and contributions are greatly appreciated. Donations may be to a specific program or to be used in our General Fund.

Combined Community Action is a 501(c)3 organization. Charitable gifts made to CCA are considered to be tax deductible contributions as by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) but if you have tax questions, please speak with your accountant or tax expert.

You may make donations payable to Combined Community Action Inc., and mail them to:

165 West Austin
Giddings, Texas 78942

Please note on your check if you would prefer a specific program should receive the donation or if it may be used as needed in our General Fund.

If you would like to assist with fundraising efforts and ideas, contact our office at (800) 688-9065 or (979) 540-2980
