Financial Educational Counseling for Texas National Guard Service Members
The Texas National Guard Family Support Foundation received a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission, Fund for Veterans’ Assistance Grant that enables the Foundation to provide financial counseling to Texas National Guard service members and family members. While the Foundation remains resolved in providing emergency financial assistance for a multitude of purposes, the grant specifically funds participation in educational classes to enhance and expand financial knowledge in order to avoid future financial crises.
The Foundation is aware that there are many programs, such as the Financial Peace University, that provide community-based classes at sites throughout Texas. Some programs are offered on an individual basis versus group classes. We welcome the opportunity to consider supporting all of these programs.
The Foundation will also pay for childcare while the service member attends the program. We will require the invoice and must be able to pay directly to the childcare center.
This program is made possible by a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance. The Fund for Veterans’ Assistance provides grants to organizations serving veterans and their families.” www.tvc.texas.gov
The Texas Military Forces State Family Program, Department of Justice, Counter-Drug and the Texas National Guard Family Support Foundation teamed up to create a summer camp specifically for the youth of Texas National Guard members!
ANG Youth attended Texas 4-H Conference Center Camp in Brownwood TX on 09-13 June 2014. Looks like they had a great time and the TXNG Family Support Foundation was honored to sponsor their participation. Click on the link here and check out their video.

Currently, Unit Family Readiness Group (FRG) fundraising is limited to an annual cap of $10,000, and an individual cap of $1,000 per donor. The Texas National Guard Family Support Foundation (TXNGFSF) can offer FRGs an alternative to allow increased fundraising. FRGs can apply to operate as a Limited Fundraising Group (LFG) under the TXNGFSF 501(c)(3) status by executing an LFG agreement. The LFG partnership is comprised of the TXNGFSF Campaign Agent, bookkeeper and support staff and an FRG support staff of three (3) representatives. Once an LFG Agreement is completed and signed by the FRG and approved and signed by the TXNGFSF, the FRG may begin soliciting for donations as an LFG.
The benefits of becoming an LFG are numerous:
Since there are legal requirements that the TXNGFSF must meet, 20% of all donations received on behalf of the LFG will be retained by the TXNGFSF, and be used to provide support to Texas National Guard service members and their families.
The FRG LFG’s responsibilities are:
Please be advised that law prohibits service members from soliciting donations during duty hours or in uniform at any time.
