Crowley-Perot Challenge Match
Turn $1 into 6 Meals
The David M. Crowley Foundation and the five Perot siblings have stepped up to combat hunger in North Texas via a combined $1,150,000 challenge match which will generate additional support to feed hungry kids, seniors and families during the hungriest season of the year - summer! Every $1 donated will provide six meals!
David M. Crowley, a local philanthropist, created the David M. Crowley Foundation in 1990 as a way to honor his wife, Mary C. Crowley, founder of Home Interiors and Gifts. The Crowley Foundation has been a close partner of the North Texas Food Bank for many years, working to improve the lives of children and at-risk families. Their gift of $150,000 is included in this challenge match.
The Perot siblings inherited a family legacy of feeding the hungry. It began with the siblings’ grandmother Lulu Mae, who fed the hungry as they came to her doorstep, and includes the Perot Foundation's contribution in 1982 of the North Texas Food Bank's Cockrell Hill distribution center. Today, each of Margot and Ross Perot’s children—Ross and Sarah Perot, Nancy Perot, Suzanne and Patrick McGee, Carolyn and Karl Rathjen, and Katherine and Eric Reeves—are donating a combined $1 million.
This combined $1.15 million challenge match is the largest in our organization’s history, and provides an opportunity to double the impact of a gift.
Imagine this - every $1 donated will provide six meals for our neighbors in need! Your investment in feeding hungry kids this summer will pay dividends when they return to school in the fall. Seniors won't have to choose between medicine and food, and families will find hope at their table.
