Mission Statement

It is the primary goal of Texas Crab Festival Charities (TCFC) to increase educational and career opportunities for Bolivar Peninsula residents of all ages and support local organizations that further the goal of improving the lives of the residents of Bolivar Peninsula. Funding is available to Bolivar Peninsula residents of all ages. There are no restrictions based on an applicant’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability.

Texas Crab Festival Charities is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves to improve the lives of those who call the Bolivar Peninsula home. Since its creation in 2013, TCFC has awarded over $400,000 to help support local residents and organizations.
