Mission. The SHINE Initiative exists to ensure girls and women are Safe, Healthy, Inspired, Nurtured, and Educated. Established in 2008, SHINE is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization that is guided by an all-volunteer Board of Directors who raise and award private funds and community resources that encourage and equip other organizations to expand or introduce programs in our five key focus areas.

Leadership. The SHINE Initiative’s dedicated Board of Directors 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. Our board believes in advancing our mission by funding projects and programs throughout the community. If you are interested in serving with SHINE, please let us know.

History. We began our work with a focus on middle school and high school girls, their moms, and mentors. We know that girls and women who shine help create more compassionate communities. Today, The SHINE Initiative funds registered nonprofit organizations in Tarrant County through our annual Rise and SHINE grant program.

A call for action. The need to encourage constructive life choices and build compassionate communities is greater than ever. Your support is critical. As an all-volunteer organization, 100% of the donations we receive go directly to support the programs and efforts of The SHINE Initiative.  SHINE exists because of the generous support of caring community members who are invested in the success of girls and women. Our partners light the way for today’s girls and women to have a brighter future. 

Your help. We believe every person was uniquely created, made to SHINE. But it doesn’t happen by accident, you have to take the initiative. By financially supporting us, you are making a commitment to serve girls and women in our community through the valuable work of The SHINE Initiative and our Rise and SHINE Grant Award Recipients. Your donation helps make our grant program possible and provides more opportunities for girls and women to be encouraged and equipped to SHINE.
