The Goodfellow Fund

The Goodfellow Fund is the Star-Telegram's holiday charity and was founded by Star-Telegram employees in 1912. The Goodfellow Fund provides clothing and shoes for underprivileged Tarrant County school-age children during the holiday season.



What you can do to be a Goodfellow
The Goodfellow Fund depends solely on the generosity of the community to assist underprivileged school-age children. For the past several years the need for clothes and shoes for qualifying Tarrant County school-age children has exceeded community support.
