Today is North Texas Giving Day, a day when people in our area are asked to give back to their favorite charities and community organizations. We hope you’ll consider making a donation to benefit the historic Texas Pool.
Why the Texas Pool?
The Texas Pool Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the Texas Pool landmark and to community outreach. Historically and architecturally unique, the Texas Pool is a local treasure and tourist attraction maintained and preserved by the Texas Pool Foundation. The Texas Pool Foundation provides access to swim safety education, swim lessons, and swimming opportunities for the general public, underserved, underprivileged, and special needs populations of Collin and Dallas Counties. The Texas Pool Foundation supports community-building civic and public events held at the Texas Pool facility. With Texas’ legendary spirit for living and giving, the Texas Pool Foundation honors the past, preserves the future and provides for today.
Donations this year will help pay for the reinforcement and reinstallation of beloved diving board, plumbing, sound system and lighting improvements and new salt cells to keep the water clean, clear and perfect for all the mermaids at heart! We also plan to continue our partnership with Tankproof to teach lifesaving swimming lessons and water safety skills to local kids who may not otherwise have had the chance to learn. And our volunteers are busy on markers and a tour to showcase our 60-year history.
Volunteerism at the Texas Pool is needed and welcomed! All of the Texas Pool team (board of directors, project chairs, and coordinators) are primarily volunteers. Whether you want to volunteer for the day at one of our annual volunteer events or you want to volunteer on the Texas Pool team, please fill out an application.
