Email for 2018 sponsorship opportunities.

Hope for Humanity is more than the Dallas Holocaust Museum’s largest fundraiser. It is an inspirational evening dedicated to honoring our local Holocaust survivors and paying tribute to an Upstander whose actions personify the Museum’s mission to teach the history of the Holocaust and to advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference.

Net revenue from Hope for Humanity supports the mission, special exhibits, and year-round educational programming and community outreach initiatives of the Dallas Holocaust Museum. The Museum does more than most history museums. Here, we inspire students to consider the real consequences of their choices. We open minds, one student at a time. We challenge them to think critically and become Upstanders. CLICK HERE to read more ...

Honoring Human Rights Champion, Lauren Embrey


Thank you for so generously supporting the 2017 Hope for Humanity fundraiser - what an inspirational evening!

Feedback from the dinner has been incredible, and the overwhelming success of the evening is because of YOU - thank you! Through table sponsorships, contributions, ticket sales and night-of support, you helped us not only reach, but EXCEED our financial goal for the event, raising more than $1,035,000 to help fund our important work that positively impacts 84,000 visitors annually, almost half of whom are students!

I am inspired and humbled by your generosity. Your investment in our mission is a worthwhile one. Net proceeds from the dinner will directly support our year-round educational and community outreach initiatives like our Upstander Speaker Series, our educational Curriculum Trunks, and our Law Enforcement Education Training, just to name a few. At the Museum, students and adults alike encounter the inhumanity of the Holocaust, but also realize that it was perpetrated by people just like them who turned a blind eye to the suffering of those around them. Your support plays a critical role in our efforts to teach the past in order to open minds and challenge people to think critically about their behaviors. Together, we are making a difference by creating Upstanders in our community - THANK YOU!

To Lauren Embrey - Thank you for your ardent support of our work here at the Museum, for all you do to advocate for racial and gender equality, and for reminding all of us - through the important work of SMU's Embrey Human Rights Program- that "There is no such thing as a lesser person."

I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to Dinner Co-Chairs, Sarah Losinger and Trea Yip; Development Chair, Melanie Kuhr; and to the Underwriting Committee. Thank you for not simply inviting new support to our dinner, but for passionately inspiring deeper engagement with our mission through your actions and advocacy.

I look forward to seeing you at the Museum!

Lauren Embrey believes that every day provides a new opportunity to become the meaningful change we desire to see in the world, and it starts with a look inside ourselves. “Each one of us can be part of the solution,” says Lauren, “and it starts by understanding our biases and the language we use.” CLICK HERE to read more ...
