The mission of the FWC Foundation, a 501 C3 non-profit organization, is to raise, manage, and render financial support for key community initiatives, as identified through the Fort Worth Chamber's Strategic planning process.
The FWC Foundation was incorporated on January 22, 1982 to receive and administer funds used exclusively for public education, crime reduction, beautification, and strategic community planning. With a Foundation Board of Trustees made up of community business leaders, this foundation has participated in several community related projects.
The FWC Foundation spearheaded the Fort Worth Heritage Trails program, which helps preserve Fort Worth's colorful past. There are 30 bronze plaques and one sleeping panther that detail parts of our history, located throughout downtown. More details and a walking map are available here.
