When you support the family... support the Soldier and Airman.                                                                                     The Texas National Guard Family Support Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 by a group of existing and former Texas National Guard members with the purpose of supporting the needs of those serving our great State of Texas during both peace and wartime.
Programs to Build Strong Famillies We have programs to support military families such as Youth Programs, Morale and Welfare Programs, Limited Fund-raising Groups and Emergency Assistance.

The Foundation receives funding from groups, companies, and individuals who wish to support the Texas Military Forces and their families.
You Can Make A Difference When our soldiers know that their efforts - and their families back at home - are blanketed in the financial and emotional support of thousands of Americans just like you, they are free to focus on the task at hand.

Your support can make a difference in the lives of our soldiers and their families - building a stronger country for every United States citizen.

Operation Strong Safety

In November 2014, News Radio KLBJ and Lamb's Tire & Automotive teamed up again for their 11th annual fundraiser benefiting the Texas National Guard troops. Once again, their news listeners and automotive clients were very generous. The Foundation was honored to be selected to receive the donations totaling almost $19,000! We were able to unite the Texas National Guard service members serving on the Operation Strong Safety (OSS) Texas border mission with their families by funding travel, lodging and Thanksgiving meals for the "Family Thanksgiving" event.

We also wish to thank the many individuals, VFWs and Anadarko Petroleum who made donations directly to the Foundation. Your support is greatly appreciated and contributed to the success of the event as well!

(Accepting the donation on behalf of the Foundation is LTC (Ret) Kristine Shelstad, a Foundation board member. Unfortunately, pictures from the event are not available as they are outside current Texas Military Forces OSS image security policy.

TX National Guard Family Support Foundation

Making A Difference

The TXNGFSF exists to support, encourage, and honor the service members and families of the Texas Military Forces.

When you support the family, you support the Soldier and Airman!

Proud to be An American

What we do:

    • Provide financial assistance for Texas Guard service members and their families. We provide a Family Medical Support program and an Emergency Assistance and Referral program to address the needs of this audience.

    • Support for youth and family programs that provide key services and experiences for Guard families that could not otherwise be paid for by the Texas Military Forces; often related specifically to the effects of deployment.

    • Sponsor patriotic activities to build community awareness and cohesion while recognizing the service of our Texas Military Forces and their families.

    • Support memorial projects to perpetuate the memory of our deceased Iraq-Afghanistan veterans and provide comfort to their survivors.

 The TXNGFSF is an all-volunteer Board, with the vast majority of all donations serving our Texas Guard service members and their families directly. We have been blessed to provide over $950,000 in emergency financial assistance alone since 2004, and see future support in the areas of medical support, financial planning assistance and referral services.
