Mission Statement

The College for All Texans Foundation: Closing the Gaps is a nonprofit corporation established in 2001 by three Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board members (Pam Willeford, Cathy Obriotti Green, and Adair Margo) with the support of the entire Coordinating Board, which has designated the Foundation as the Board's official nonprofit partner. The Foundation is governed by a board of trustees, a majority of whom are appointed by the chairman of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The Foundation is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Foundation's mission is to generate the resources necessary to ensure the success of the College for Texans Campaign, led by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

The College for Texans Campaign is the "statewide awareness and motivational campaign" that the Coordinating Board was directed to establish by the 77th Legislature under Sections 61.951-61.954 of the Texas Education Code. Its mission is to build a college-going culture throughout Texas, and its objective is to enroll an additional 430,000 academically prepared people--beyond the 200,000 enrollment growth projected on the basis of trends--into Texas higher education by 2015. The Campaign is a central part of the state's higher education plan, Closing the Gaps by 2015.
