What we aim to solve New!

In Mansfield, TX, we only have 3 public lit tennis courts. In a city of 70,000 people, we should have at miminum 7 public lit tennis courts, based on the American Planning Association. In 2016, the city proposed to update a public park named, Chandler Park with 5 lit tennis courts. The project was changed midstream and only 3 existing courts were updated. The other 2 courts was scraped and the money was diverted to another project. In a meeting with city, mayor and our organization and agreement was made that the city would pay for the lights and one court if MATA would pay for the other court, approx. $75,000. We agreed. However, in a meeting with the parks and rec department September 2018, we were told the cost is now $150,000 we need to pay for one court and lights. Right now it is in the city council's hand to get this project approved and started. We have some money promised to us, not enough though. Once we have the committment from the city, we will need to raise $120,000.

1. We need to hire a fundraising firm to raise the $120,000 to build the 2 public lit tennis courts. 2. We need to fundraise to get $120,000.

Hire a fundraising company to help us raise the money for tennis courts. We provide our community with low cost tennis for kids and adults in Mansfield, TX. Our executive board is based on all volunteers and we depend on volunteers to help us run our tennis programs. We have one paid staff member, our USPTA tennis pro that we pay per assignment.

Were are an established non-profit since November 2012. We are here to stay and promote the healthly sport of tennis for our community. We have a website and FB account. If we have the 2 extra tennis courts, we can then have tennis tournaments and leagues that will bring revenue into our community.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization


Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?



Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?



Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?



Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?



Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?


Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
