“This is one of the perks of the job. We like to give back to the schools because we see the difference that they are truly making in our community.”
~ Robert Partin
Former Stone Gate Homeowners Association Vice-President Robert Partin has always been a community-oriented individual and served as a volunteer for the Stone Gate Adopt-a-school program for 13 years.

January 2017 – Present
Robert Partin transitioned off of the HOA board into his new role as a School Communications Director with Land Tejas and served as a liaison between Houston Area School Districts (Alvin, Cy-Fair, Humble, and Dickinson) and the Canyon Gate Communities that reside within each individual district. Every community Homeowners’ Association has a charitable entity that provides scholarships and funds to the needs of schools within each community. This includes, but is by no means limited to resources and supplies for teachers, scholarships for youth in higher education, construction of community parks, and more. As of October 2019 over $1 Million has been donated in classroom grants for the benefit of students and educators.
Partin Foundation Established
The Partin Foundation was founded in November 2015 after the tragic line-of-duty death of Harris County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Darren H. Goforth. Deputy Goforth was a beloved servant of the Canyon Gate Communities that the Partin Foundation is proud to call home. To date, Robert Partin has donated over $18,000 to a memorial education scholarship in Deputy Goforth’s name to honor his sacrifice. The Foundation continues to seek opportunities to award other merit-based scholarships in the near future. The current recipient of the Goforth Memorial Scholarship is a student at Cy-Falls High School located in Cypress Texas. As a tribute to Deputy Goforth and all fallen peace officers, the Partin Foundation has designed and overseen the construction of a memorial for all fallen peace officers which is located in Cypress, Texas. This memorial is not far from where Deputy Goforth lost his life in the line of duty. The memorial stands as a reminder to all people that the community stands with our law enforcement defenders.
