OneStar Foundation: Texas Center for Social Impact is the extraordinary next step in a 31-year history of Texas governors' support of nonprofit organizations and volunteers. Whether nonprofits are strengthening education, fighting hunger, promoting health or helping people overcome trauma or tragedy, OneStar is united behind their mission: improving lives. We support the front lines on the fight against poverty, abuse, neglect, homelessness and addiction. We connect the sector with government and business communities, set new performance expectations and seek innovative new approaches to solve the social issues of today. We champion nonprofits' efforts to professionalize their operations and capitalize on their mission. On every level, we improve the lives of every Texan - every day.
The success of nonprofits is being targeted through four focus areas at OneStar. Service and Volunteerism manages Texas' national service programs and engages volunteers in creating community-wide approaches to address social issues. Nonprofit Organizational Excellence develops and teaches strategies on improving operations, performance and end results. Reports created and provided by Research, Evaluation and Learning provide invaluable information about nonprofit best practices and policies. Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship will be launched later this year to encourage nonprofits to establish long term strategies and creative approaches to accomplishing their missions.
