What We Do

     Texas Foundation for the Arts develops, secures the funding for, and writes and produces documentary films that shine a spotlight on Texas arts, history and culture. 

     Our programs are provided free to PBS and nationally through NETA (National Educational Telecommunications Association), as in the case of The Golden Age of Texas Courthouses.  PBS stations across the state often rebroadcast our programs, several of which can now be seen on Houston's HTV.

      As Texas Foundation for the Arts is a tax-exempt, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, all contributions are tax-deductible.
