A Look Back at the 2023 Texas Nonprofit Summit

Austin | February 27-March 1, 2023

The 2023 Texas Nonprofit Summit marked an exciting return of OneStar’s flagship event. The conference, themed RE:engage, invited attendees to explore sector issues as they relate to today’s ever-evolving Texas landscape. Sessions were focused around building momentum and leaning into the vast possibilities for social change.

The conference kicked off with high-energy keynotes from Tracy Spears and Dr. Froswa’ Booker-Drew. We closed out the opening plenary with getting up, moving, and connecting with Forklift Danceworks. Attendees were offered a variety of breakout sessions and deep dives designed to induce collaborative strategy, strengthen leadership, and build the adaptive capacities of our organizations. On day three, nearly 125 attendees headed to the Texas Capitol to participate in our first Texas Nonprofit Strong Day. Information sessions educated attendees on the ways in which government impacts their work and how they can be empowered to advocate on behalf of the Texas nonprofit sector.

With more than 350 attendees, we drew a statewide crowd of nonprofit leaders and supporters who came to both learn and celebrate the strength and impact of the Texas nonprofit sector. Our sponsors, including Texas Mutual, NRG, UFCU, and the RGK Center for Philanthropy & Community Service, were critical in enabling such a great three-day education experience. Thank you to our engaged attendees for showing up making this year one of deep connection and innovation.

2023 Texas Nonprofit Summit

The Texas Nonprofit Summit was such a great networking opportunity. It is important that we are able to learn and share with others. It definitely assisted me in seeing the big picture and how important each nonprofit is in the lives of our citizens.
