The SHINE Initiative


Learn more about The SHINE Initiative.


The SHINE Initiative, founded in 2008, is a registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization based in Fort Worth, Texas. Our mission is to ensure that girls and women are Safe, Healthy, Inspired, Nurtured, and Educated.

We believe when these five components of life come together in a positive way, they build a solid foundation for a person to live more fully with purpose.

SHINE funds nonprofit organizations in Tarrant County through our annual Rise and SHINE Grant Program.

Our Board of Directors Lights the Way

The SHINE Initiative is guided by a dedicated Board of Directors who donate their time, talent, and treasure so that they can positively impact the lives of girls and women in Fort Worth and its surrounding areas. The Board believes in advancing our mission by funding projects and programs throughout the community that support our five key focus areas. If you are interested in serving with SHINE, please let us know.
