TI Foundation announced on its website that the TI Founders Leadership Fellows program will provide three annual nonprofit work experiences to university or graduate students who are planning a nonprofit career.
“Our founders created a legacy of deep community involvement and giving back,” said Andy Smith, executive director of the TI Foundation, on the website. “That legacy has strongly influenced our culture and has inspired decades of community service by TIers around the world. We want to honor their passion and commitment for making a difference and celebrate the impact their generosity has had on our community.”
The fellowships were established in collaboration with the Dallas Museum of Art, the University of Texas at Dallas and the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and are expected to build a pipeline of nonprofit leaders in the Dallas area over the next 20 years.
