The Pinnacle Star Foundation

The Pinnacle Star Foundation is a community-based 501c3 organization committed to the uplift of the youth within the communities in which we live and serve. The foundation is built upon the motto “Reach one, Lift one”.

The Pinnacle Star name derives from an individual being a guiding star in their homes, schools and communities while reaching their life pinnacle, striving to be the best they can in all aspects of their character. The Pinnacle Star Foundation partners with national and other community-based organizations who shares the understanding of how important it is to provide mentoring and sources of enlightenment to our youth, exposing them to a broader view of our society and world enabling them to set and achieve pinnacle star goals of high self-esteem, a positive self-image and making good life choices.

In addition to the Foundation’s commitment to education, we focus on youth mentoring and community-based initiatives, including coordinating with the youth in our mentoring program on volunteer activities with the North Texas Food Bank and the Forest Green Manor senior citizens home. The Foundation believes it is important to strike a balance with our youth on both mentoring and teaching them the value of service and uplift.
