Irving, Texas. December 19, 2017

The Irving Share Tank Steering committee, a partnership of seven businesses and organizations, celebrated the conclusion of the Irving Share Tank Program. The celebration was held Wednesday, December 13, at the Irving Arts Center. During the celebration, 16 non-profits were awarded over $30,000.

“Share Tank provides a unique opportunity for nonprofits to polish their business model while gaining boardroom experience. This program serves as a bridge for engagement between our corporate residents and the local organizations helping our community’s needs,” said Mayor Rick Stopfer.
