The Touchdown Club of Dallas was established in 1998 to benefit the Ashford Rise School of Dallas through financial, volunteer and advisory support.

The Rise School of Dallas began operation at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in April 1998 as a nonprofit organization, according to the school’s website. The Rise School of Dallas joined the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas in 2016 making its new home in the Moody Family YMCA, and in 2017 received a capital campaign donation from Ashford Incorporated becoming the Ashford Rise School of Dallas, according to the website.
