Troy Aikman is not only a Dallas Cowboys legend. The former quarterback and HP resident is also a renowned philanthropist.
To continue his legacy of giving, the Troy Aikman foundation announced a $1 million gift to the Unite Forever Campaign with the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.
The Unite Forever Campaign aims to transform and preserve the future of North Texans. This donation adds to several others in an effort for the campaign to reach its $100 million goal.
However, Aikman is no stranger to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. He has served onthe board from 2012 to 2015, and joined the board of directors earlier this year.
“I’m proud of this partnership, and hope my commitment will be a catalyst for others to invest in brighter futures for the next generation,” Aikman said in a statement. “It’s important to me to make a lasting difference for Dallas, and inspire my daughters toward a legacy of giving back.”
