Authorized by the Texas Legislature in Senate Bill 993 (2013 R), the Texas Nonprofit Council is comprised of up to twelve leaders from the nonprofit sector who provide front-line perspective and insight to state agencies. Council members are appointed by the Texas Governor and meet regularly, often in coordination with the Interagency Coordinating Group, to direct their work and help to fulfill joint requirements.
The Office of the Governor is currently making appointments to the Texas Nonprofit Council. If you are interested in strengthening Texas and the nonprofit sector by serving on the Council, OneStar encourages you to learn more and access application materials at the Office of the Texas Governor’s Appointments page.
Texas Nonprofit Council will be appointed by the Texas Governor in spring 2021. Check back soon for a list of appointed members.
The Texas Nonprofit Council reports to the Texas Legislature biannually in December when active. Check out previous reports for an inspiring look at how nonprofit leaders inform best practices in state agency collaborations with faith-based and community organizations.
