Board of Trustees

The Episcopal Foundation of Dallas (the “Foundation”) was established by the Diocesan Convention of 1950 at the request of Bishop C. Avery Mason, with a vision to bring together “the best business brains in the Diocese” to invest and administer the trust funds of the Diocese and its parishes and missions. That tradition continues today, with approximately $39 million in assets under management, under the oversight of a Board of Trustees comprised of men and women active in the church and prominent in their respective fields. The Bishop is an ex officio member of the Board.  The Board of Trustees of Episcopal Foundation of Dallas is composed of the following accomplished and distinguished individuals:
