The Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with two distinct but related missions. First, we support programmatic initiatives structured to identify, pilot, and scale systemic improvements in public education. Second, we support public policy solutions that invest in our students, encourage innovation and autonomy, and improve college and workforce readiness.
The future of Texas – our economy, communities, and citizenry – depends on how well we prepare our students today. All students deserve a level playing field and equal access to a quality public education. We believe our public schools represent our greatest hope for educating and preparing all 5+ million Texas students for the future.
If you’re ready to get engaged, join us to help strengthen and improve public schools for all Texas students. Because the future of Texas is in our public schools.
Come be part of our journey!
