As President of the Foundation for the Callier Center, Mrs. Thoele spearheads the separate 501(c)3 organization that serves as an advisory committee to the president of The University of Texas at Dallas and to the executive director of the Callier Center. Mrs. Thoele connected with Callier through her service as a charity researcher for Crystal Charity Ball when Callier was selected as a 2015 beneficiary for a project that provided hearing aids and follow-up services to children from low-income families in Dallas County.

The foundation’s mission is to increase recognition of the Callier Center in the community and within The University of Texas System, as well as to help carry out fundraising activities.
