Kurt Bartley - University of Texas at Arlington

In February 2019, the University of Texas at Arlington hosted Phil Cubeta for our very own Legacy Home Run seminar. From the dozen households represented on that Saturday morning, UTA now has an additional four current endowed scholarships, each at least $25,000, and five new legacy commitments. These are incredible batting averages! Get the right folks in the ballpark and let Phil be your leadoff batter.

I think a Phil's legacy home run program would be very powerful for both development officers and donors. The program is not typical fundraising fare and deals with subject matter that development officers know from experience but don’t have experience articulating. Phil solves that problem by taking the burden off of the development officer to find the language that gets to the core of the philanthropic decision.

Our Southwestern Medical Foundation Legacy Home Run event at Old Parkland with Phil in 2018 was very well received. It allowed us to elevate the philanthropic discussion with a group of highly motivated prospects. One of the donors who attended, with whom I have worked, subsequently included a testamentary CRT in his estate plan as a way to take care of children and then add to his legacy. Many attendees are now in the portfolios of our major gift officers and are being cultivated and stewarded.

Dr. Steven Myers - Author of Personalized Philanthropy
I am honored my book, Personalized Philanthropy, is included in the CAP program and has been a source for The Legacy Home Run Challenge.

The book and the challenge teach the donor to touch all the bases, annual, major and planned gifts in hitting their legacy home run, with the help of advisors on first, second, and third. And, remember you'll have a great coach in Phil Cubeta.

I look forward to seeing the Dallas Team hit one out of the park!


Do I have to be a CAP?

No, but you must be invited by a CAP.

Is there a charge?

No, this is for the community 

Can I protect the anonymity of my donors and clients?

Yes, this is set up so you will get the link that you forward to donors and clients. They are welcome to sign in as anonymous.

Why is Phil doing this?

"My wife, Katie, and I moved from Dallas years ago, we still feel it is home. This is my way of giving back to the CAPs in Dallas and remaining engaged in a city Katie and I have come to love." -Phil 

What will this make possible?

Dallas will lead the country as this legacy program goes from city to city. A generation of donors will hit their home run. Ideally, a stand up home run so they can hear the crowd roar.
