Circle of SHINE 2018



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 raises and awards private funds and community resources that encourage and equip other organizations to expand or introduce programs in our five key focus areas.

History. SHINE  began its work with a focus on middle school and high school girls, their moms, and mentors. As we complete our first decade of service in 2018, we know now more than ever 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. 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. It doesn’t happen by accident, you have to take the initiative. Please consider making a commitment to serve girls and women in our community through the valuable work of SHINE and our Rise and SHINE Grant Award Recipients. Your donation helps support the Rise and SHINE Grant program and provides more opportunities for girls and women to be encouraged and equipped to SHINE. 

Your support lights the way to a brighter future for local girls and women!
