Congratulations to our Honorees!
2021 Texas Legacy
Every Texan is proud to award Darren Walker the 2021 Every Texan Legacy Award for his steadfast commitment to social justice and advancing equity. Walker has taken exemplary steps to strengthen the philanthropic sector’s response to rising inequality and systemic injustice in Texas, the United States, and worldwide. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ford Foundation took a historic and unprecedented step to increase philanthropic giving through the sale of social bonds, which served to stabilize and strengthen nonprofit organizations in the wake of the global crisis.
