The College for All Texans Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) 509 (a)(3), Type I corporation established in 2001 to support the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) in raising awareness and financial support for the state’s higher education plan.
The mission of the Foundation is to generate private sector resources needed to ensure the success of the state’s higher education plan, 60x30TX. This new strategic plan was adopted in July 2015 by THECB with strong support from the state’s education and business stakeholders. Goals of the new plan are to improve overall levels for attainment by Texas residents 25-34 years of age; increase completions by students of all ages enrolled in college; improve the level and awareness of marketable skills attained by graduates; and restrain student debt to levels that will not unduly burden graduates.
