The 42nd Annual National Day of Prayer Luncheon on May 4th, 2023, was a glorious success!  Almost 600 guests joined us at The Meyerson Symphony Center to celebrate diversity, interfaith prayer, gratitude, and goodwill.  The event was hosted by Honorary Event Chair Gabe Madison, President of Bonton Farms, along with The Board of Directors and staff of The Thanks-Giving Foundation, and The Interfaith Council at Thanks-Giving Square.  Our Featured Speaker, Ken Hersh, President and CEO of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, delivered an outstanding talk on the topic of trust that earned him a standing ovation!  Plan now to join the 43rd Annual Luncheon at noon on May 2, 2024.

Mission:  Coming together on Common Ground, moving together to Higher Ground

Our work can be described as an undertaking of two important goals;

  • Coming Together on Common Ground – a convening of the community to negotiate differences and create understanding and appreciation of the diversity present among us.
  • Moving Together to Higher Ground – an initiative to lead, inspire and elevate the community to a more morally and ethically perfected state of being…a community that advocates for a fair, just, equitable and inclusive Dallas where we ALL have the opportunity to thrive and flourish.
By generously supporting The Thanks-Giving Foundation, you join in the movement of gratitude that leads to a greater community and a greater world.
