Careers at The OneStar Foundation
About OneStar Foundation

OneStar’s mission is to build a better nonprofit sector for a better Texas.  For over four decades there has been an acknowledgment by the State of Texas of the critical importance of civic engagement and volunteering to the strength of our communities. From the creation of the Texas Center for Volunteer Action in 1976 to the formation of its eventual successor, OneStar Foundation in 2004, Texas has maintained its support of a strong nonprofit sector.

Today, OneStar carries out its mission for state government as a supporting nonprofit of the Office of the Governor. We serve as the state’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives and the State Service Commission, managing a portfolio of approximately $18.2 million in federal grant funds for AmeriCorps*Texas programs. OneStar focuses on strengthening the nonprofit sector, encouraging civic engagement through service and volunteering, promoting innovative strategies to address local issues and facilitating public-private partnerships to expand the reach of the sector.

OneStar is recognized statewide as an advocate for service and volunteering, a neutral convener and a respected business partner to foundations, state agencies, and the business community. Together we can make a stronger more vibrant Texas with opportunities for all to serve.

At OneStar, we are committed to being an exemplary employer, where our employees are our greatest asset, by embracing a culture of teamwork with open and honest communication, a common vision and sense of purpose, regular celebration of success, courage and perseverance to take risks, personal integrity, continuous learning and empowerment.
