GREATER TEXAS FOUNDATION | Annual Report 2021
Investing for the Future in Rural Texas
Rural communities can provide the perfect environment for collaboration and innovation. Many rural communities have the benefit of being more tight-knit with a stronger sense of community needs.
A small town can be more nimble in responding to opportunity and affecting change.
One of the hallmarks of a successful rural collaborative is dedicated and passionate leadership. In this report, we share several examples of successful programs brought to life by leaders with a vision, who set high standards, reached out to community partners, sourced necessary resources, and worked tirelessly to create opportunity for their neighbors. These leaders are an inspiration and the foundation is honored to support their success.
The 700,000+ students in rural Texas are the key to the future of our state. Thanks to partners like those profiled in this annual report, more rural students can access equitable educational opportunities and we will all benefit from more bountiful opportunities and wider horizons.
