For almost four decades there has been an acknowledgement by the State of Texas of the critical importance of civic engagement to the strength of our communities. From the creation of the Texas Center for Volunteer Action in 1976 to the formation of its eventual successor, OneStar Foundation in 2004, Texas has maintained its support of a strong nonprofit sector. Today, OneStar Foundation is recognized state-wide as the voice of the sector, a neutral convener and a respected business partner to foundations, state agencies, and the business community.One Star Foundation has not yet activated their merchant account with Givsum.
