Education

TNB Foundation is a Texas non-profit foundation that was established in January of 2023 with the idea of making a difference in our community by giving back. Our foundation is led by Rio Grande Valley natives that understand the needs of the community and that are committed to making a positive impact. The TNB Foundation started its journey by identifying three top priorities centered on education, affordable housing and support for small businesses.
