40 Stories for 40 Years: Texas Women's Foundation

by Emily Roberts | Dec 19, 2018

In November 2018 the Dallas Women’s Foundation became the Texas Women’s Foundation. The name change reflects the foundation’s position that the future workforce and future economy in Texas depend upon investing in solutions that address the root causes of women's economic insecurity—and reverse them. This transformation honors the foundation’s 33 years as a leader in advocating for social and economic change for women and girls in Texas.

Since its inception, the foundation has been an important supporter of the growth of programs at The Family Place. Our earliest gift from the foundation came in 1986, and our most recent arrived last month. In all, the Texas Women’s Foundation and its grantors have provided over $1 million for our capital and program needs.

Join us in thanking the Texas Women’s Foundation for its effort to strengthen the economic security and change the trajectory of thousands of  women and girls from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic communities. We share the foundation’s goal to ensure that Texas women, girls and families have the knowledge, financial and occupational resources to move from surviving to thriving!
