Thanks to H-E-B!
BAFTX has just been awarded $1000 from H-E-B’s Tournament of Champions Charitable Trust, a special fund that receives its money from an annual golf tournament sponsored by H-E-B’s vendor community. We are very grateful to H-E-B and will ensure their donation, as with all donations, is put to excellent use.
Get involved!
BAFTX is currently seeking volunteer board members. If you can commit to a meeting every other month, and would like to make a difference to the future of young people in Texas, please email us on for further information.
Thank you for your capital campaign donations
The current economic conditions make philanthropy difficult so we are especially grateful to our benefactors who donated this Fall to our capital campaign. BAFTX has been reaching out to more schools, colleges and students than ever before, ensuring that your donation is awarded to the most deserving candidates. Of course, we are still accepting donations, email for more information.
Be social with us.....
We are spreading the word about our activities and how we are ensuring that tomorrow's leaders receive the education they need.  We recently appeared in the Houston Chronicle and are active online - please "like" and "share" our links below to hear more about our students, programs and events.
All the very best
As the year draws to a close,  BAFTX would like to wish you and your family a very happy and restful holiday and all the best for a successful, healthy and peaceful 2017.
