The United Way Foundation of Metropolitan Dallas received a lead gift of $5 million from the grandchildren of Caroline Rose Hunt on the evening of Oct. 27. The donation was made to honor Hunt and her more than 50 years of commitment and dedication to the organization.
Hunt started with the organization going door to door to solicit donations. In 2013, Hunt received the foundation’s most prestigious award, the J. Erik Jonsson Award.
The donation will go to the Unite Forever Campaign, which launched in February, helping the effort to raise $100 million for the United Way Foundation of Metropolitan Dallas. The cause intends to ensure support for education, income, and health in the North Texas area.
