A New Strategy for OneStar
Announcing the 2017 Texas Nonprofit Summit Series
Wichita Falls * Lufkin * Beaumont
In 2016 OneStar Foundation departed from our forty year history of hosting a single statewide nonprofit summit, opting instead to partner with communities in rural or under resourced regions of the state.
Our first series included El Paso, The Rio Grande Valley, and Lubbock. The series inspired leaders across all sectors to focus on the nexus of service, leadership and collaboration. Each event was locally driven to meet the needs and aspirations of participants and encourage cross sector collaboration, highlight promising practices and catalyze strategies to address local issues.
Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott was a special guest at all three forums in 2016, where she welcomed attendees and provided remarks on volunteerism and service. Mrs. Abbott introduced “TEXANTHROPY” her initiative to promote volunteerism and philanthropy, across the State of Texas. To learn more about Texanthropy, visit http://gov.texas.gov/texanthropy.
