The Cares Alliance History

The Cares Alliance, a 501c3 non-profit serving central Texas, was founded in 2016 by Robert and Michelle Fischer. The Cares Alliance began as RJF Team Cares and provided financial donations to charities, missions, and individuals, while bringing awareness to the needs of those individuals and organizations. The mission was to be a force of good that highlighted financial needs and provided safe, secure opportunities to support those needs within the community.

The Cares Alliance was then joined by other organizations and businesses who shared this same vision. The evolution of the The Cares Alliance Board was created with volunteer support, donations and partners devoted to the mission. From the beginning, Luke and Mary Hawthorne with Emerald Lawns stepped up as a key partners and helped to substantially increase the direction and donations awarded to charity recipients. As we grow we continue to make an impact with the gracious support from our new partners like Joe Bland of Joe Bland Construction.

With over $120,000 in donations awarded since 2016, the potential community impact of The Cares Alliance is growing by leaps and bounds, and your partnership increases our alliance potential. 

A Continued Mission
The Cares Alliance invites corporations, organizations, and residents of the community to join us in strengthening our community, together. As part of this mission, The Cares Alliance pledges a charitable donation (currently ~ $9,000 each voting period) to worthy non-profits, missions/churches, schools, or families in need based on the nominations and votes of the local community. We want to help to uncover needs and then act as the conduit for neighbors to help each other in ways big and small.

Nomination periods take place every other month with a community vote held the following month, which helps create a constant connection to the needs of the community. Each nomination and voting period is focused on a different vital sector of the local community, including other worthy non-profits, mission groups/churches, schools, or families in need
