Looking Forward​

Bright Prospects in Every Zip Code

In Texas, a third of all schools are in rural areas. Those areas are vital to the future of our state.

Students in rural Texas face unique barriers to postsecondary achievement, but for Texas to remain competitive on a national and international level, we must invest in our rural students. By building better linkages between K-12 and postsecondary education, we can strengthen the college-going pipeline. And by mapping existing educational and work opportunities onto regional economic goals, rural areas can build a path to greater economic prosperity.

Greater Texas Foundation will continue to seek partners and grantmaking opportunities to invest in rural collaborations, to the benefit of the entire state. We welcome your partnership in this effort.

GTF’s most significant impact on Texas is its continued focus on the citizens in rural communities.
