Leave a Legacy

Since 1929, The Dallas Foundation has been here to do good for the city and its citizens, and to honor the goodwill and vision of its many benefactors.  Anchored by the vision of our founders, scores of individuals have left a legacy through The Dallas Foundation that carries on those charitable interests in perpetuity.

We are aware of the special debt of gratitude this Foundation owes to those donors who have demonstrated the ultimate level of trust by supporting our work through a bequest or planned gift. As a means of expressing that gratitude and to recognize their generosity across generations, we created The Dallas Foundation’s Legacy Society in 2004.  

The Legacy Society is a way for us to acknowledge our partnership with these special donors and honor their thoughtful gift planning.  All those who notify us of a bequest or other deferred gift to The Dallas Foundation are eligible to be members of the Legacy Society.  Members will be invited to special events and briefings, and be recognized in Foundation publications, unless they prefer to avoid any publicity.

See our brochure on the Legacy SocietyGary Garcia would be delighted to answer any questions you may have about continuing a personal charitable legacy through a gift to the Foundation.
