Overview:

Background

The TNLA Foundation was established in 1992. A nine-member Board of Trustees plus two staff-appointed positions manage the business of the Foundation. ​

The main purposes of the Foundation are:

  • To conduct fundraising activities on behalf of and to support the overall purposes of the Foundation.
  • To operate exclusively for the purposes of awarding funds to horticulture/landscape students for their continued education and to award funds for research in horticulture/landscape areas of interest in Texas.

The TNLA Foundation is irrevocably dedicated to and is organized exclusively for charitable purposes. The Foundation receives contributions and distributes funds for educational and research purposes.

TNLA Foundation Scholarship

The importance of educating students to assume leadership and ownership positions in agriculture/horticulture over the coming decades is critical. The love of the land and the care of it are essential to future of Texas.

Goals:​

 The importance of educating students to assume leadership and ownership positions in agriculture/horticulture over the coming decades is critical. The love of the land and the care of it are essential to Texas future. Grow Texas goals are very similar to the Foundation goals.

Why:

​The Foundation has worked hard to develop a scholarship program that sustains itself, gives new donors a meaningful way to give and cultivates applicants and encourages recipients to identify with the industry of which they are interested.

​ The Foundation believes in rewarding youth for hard work and what they would like to give to the industry. We feel that the management of the Grow Texas scholarships would allow a broader reach into the high school, community colleges, universities, FFA, etc. where tomorrow’s leaders gather. Our current relationships will be enriched to the benefit of both of our programs, plus there may be a subtle introduction for some to the options of agriculture careers in the Green Industry.
