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.

In 2017, SHINE awarded grant funds to the following:

SAFETY: Safe Haven of Tarrant County - "Safe Dates" Teen Dating Violence Prevention Program

HEALTH: Texas Health Resources Foundation - Wellness for Life Mobile Health Unit

INSPIRATION: the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth - Lunch with the Girls
