Become a Changemaker!

The Kathlyn Joy Gilliam Museum is building a coalition of sponsors and partners who share and support Mrs. Gilliam’s vision to improve education and the opportunities in the southern sector of Dallas.  We want you to be a part of our coalition!

If you believe in the importance of:

  • preserving our local heroes’ legacies;
  • improving education; and
  • revitalizing South Dallas for its residents and all of the Dallas Metroplex  

then this is a mission that will speak to you!

The future of the Museum is in the hands of highly capable leadership.  We know you will see the value in this opportunity to continue the work that Mrs. Gilliam was so passionate about. 

Donating to the Museum is an excellent way to express your commitment to her ideals and these worthy initiatives. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.  All donations are tax deductible.
