THE TOM LANDRY ASSOCIATES PROGRAM
The Tom Landry Associates is FCA's major donor program named in honor of Coach Tom Landry to commemorate the legacy of impact not just in football, but also for the Kingdom, and as a very special friend, leader and benefactor to FCA. The Tom Landry Associates program recognizes major donors who are leaving a legacy of impact for generations to come through generously investing in FCA's vision to "see the world impacted for Jesus Chris through the influence of coaches and athletes."
COACH TOM LANDRY AND HIS FCA CONNECTION
In the summer of 1962, Tom Landry attended an FCA National Conference in Estes Park, Colorado. He was astonished to find 700 athletes and coaches enjoying a week of "inspiration and perspiration."
He then devoted a large portion of his time to FCA in a variety of ways. He shared his faith at numerous national events, conferences, banquets and fundraisers. In the mid-1960's he joined FCA's National Board of Trustees, where he served faithfully for a decade, including his role as chairman of the board and contribution to many decisions, which strengthened and advanced the ministry.
He was also active in local FCA ministry in Dallas, Texas for 30 years, including serving as the chairman of the local board and even hosting monthly executive team meetings during the busy NFL season.
