When a Texas prosecutor stands up and announces “ready” for the State, the community needs to know that that prosecutor is truly prepared to see justice done. With government funding for training ever-decreasing, the Foundation can step in to support excellence in Texas prosecution. The Foundation’s leadership believes that Texans share our vision of a safer state, and having well-trained and equipped professional champions in the courtroom can make a real difference.
The Texas District & County Attorneys Foundation provides support for such endeavors.

This spring, the TDCAF Board will be accepting nominations for the Texas Prosecutors Society (TPS). The Society honors those who have served with distinction and who support the continued efforts of TDCAA to live up to our standard: “So the State is Always Ready.”
The Texas Prosecutors Society was established in 2011. Its purpose is to bring together those who have demonstrated enduring support for the profession of prosecution. Using the Texas Bar Foundation as a model, nominees are asked to donate $2,500, or $250 over 10 years, to an endowment fund. The Society gathers each year at a reception during the Elected Prosecutor Conference to celebrate the new class of inductees and to catch up with old friends and colleagues.
Nominations are accepted by the Foundation Board, which also seeks nominations from the TDCAA Board. Nominees must have a minimum of five years’ service as a prosecutor or other criminal justice professional and a significant and sustained contribution to the advancement of the profession and criminal justice in Texas.
Do you have someone in mind who fits the bill? Just let me know at Robert.Kepple@tdcaa.com.
