Give students the gift of great leaders

Strong leadership is critical to the long-term success of any organization – public schools are no exception. Your gift to The Holdsworth Center directly supports high-quality, life-changing professional development for leaders in school districts across Texas.

At Holdsworth, we believe growing outstanding leaders at all levels of a school system will result in better outcomes for students, a belief that’s backed by decades of research.

Join our founder, Charles Butt, in strengthening our Texas public schools by helping them grow strong, inspiring leaders who can push student achievement to new heights.

There is no shortcut and no silver bullet. If we want to get to the root of making long-term, sustainable improvements to public education, we’ve got to invest the time to go deep within our districts.”
