The Foundation of FPC Dallas
The purpose of the Foundation is to support the benevolent, charitable, educational and missionary work of the church.
For over 150 years, the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas has been an amazing part of God’s transforming work in the world. As a congregation with such a rich history, we are reminded daily that we drink from wells we did not dig and feast from vineyards we did not plant—but someone did. In both facilities and ministry we are surrounded daily by this cloud of witnesses. Those who have gone before us in the life of this congregation offered their time, talents and treasure to join God’s transforming work in the world. Today we are that “someone” for those who will follow us in this unfolding of God’s history.
As those who came before us, today we are called to embody the notion that we have been blessed to be a blessing to the generations who will follow us. One of the ways we can be faithful in this call is through our legacy gifts to the church’s Foundation. In no small measure, your gifts will assure upcoming generations a quality and vibrant mission for God in the heart of this city.
