Advancement Foundation News


Philanthropy Award 2016Tom Karen McCall

The Advancement Foundation recognized its Philanthropists of the Year at the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ National Philanthropy Day, November 17. Every year around the 15th of November, many cities in America and around the world, both large and small, celebrate National Philanthropy Day to honor and recognize local philanthropists and the nonprofit organizations they support.

This year, Thomas McCall and his wife, Karen, were feted at the standing-room-only luncheon at the Cendera Center in Fort Worth. The McCalls are chairing the Holy Cross Capital Campaign in The Colony known as the GIFT Campaign, Give in Faith Today. They have raised nearly $2 million and are on track to begin the facelift of the front entrance of their Church. Congratulations to Karen and Tom McCall.
