We can see the new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, with its soaring arch and delicate cables, from our office windows. The bridge has a practical purpose - to move traffic - but that statement belies its true value. The bridge creates connections between communities.
In recent years, we've been forging new links within the local nonprofit world. We organized the Companion Animal Funders Coalition, working with local and national foundations, the city of Dallas, and animal welfare groups, to launch the "Big Fix for Big D." The program aims to lower the high euthanasia rate at Dallas Animal Services by providing inexpensive spay and neuter services.
We're working to build closer relationships with donors, and last fall, we received proof that we're succeeding. We ranked first in donor satisfaction among the 26 community foundations surveyed by the Center for Effective Philanthropy.
We're even forging new connections with some of our oldest friends. In 1929, The Dallas Morning News helped establish The Dallas Foundation. This year, we're pleased to announce that The Dallas Morning News will co-sponsor our popular Good Works Under 40 Awards for outstanding young volunteers.
We invite you to learn more about the bridges we build. Although we do have a special tie to the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, most of our connections aren't formed with concrete and steel. They're made with mutual respect, hard work and a shared desire to enrich and improve life in North Texas. We make connections for good.
