About the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas Foundation
The first gift to the Endowment Fund was made by E.R. Brown, Chairman of the YMCA Board of Directors from 1919-1934. The will of Mr. Brown established a Trust to pay the YMCA and his church $1,000 annually for maintenance, upkeep and operation. In the intervening years, many gifts have been received from those with similar interests for the perpetuity of the mission and growth of the YMCA’s service to youth and families of the greater Dallas area.
In 1995, the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas Foundation was chartered as a Texas non-profit corporation to manage the investments and distribution of the endowment of the YMCA Foundation. A majority of the scholarships awarded to the students are from the F.W. & Bessie A. Dye Foundation Scholarship fund and the remaining scholarships are funded through community gifts and donated gifts to the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas Foundation.
