Our Initiatives

Generating Change

Aligned with our mission to serve the people of Texas are three high-priority initiatives – the environment, public education, and mental health. These issues are complex and urgent, and require additional attention and concentrated effort. We connect intense study, evaluation, and learning with targeted investments to achieve measurable change for each of these vital issues.
