Special Programs

The George Foundation developed and funds two unique programs to engage Fort Bend residents to join us in our mission to serve the community. The Youth-in-Philanthropy Program, better known as YIP, allows about 175 high school students each year to experience an eight month, hands-on journey in volunteerism. The Leadership Excellence for Nonprofit Program is designed to arm board members and staff of local nonprofits with the knowledge, skill set, and network necessary to take their organization to the next level.
