Philanthropic Oversight:
Technology Ball & Dallas Foundation Partnership


DIGITAL CONDUIT/Technology Ball is a proud philanthropic partner of the Dallas Foundation, a community foundation with an 80+ year history. Through this partnership, The Dallas Foundation will provide fiduciary oversight and nonprofit governance over Technology Ball’s philanthropic elements, to ensure that we support STEM students through the University of Texas at Dallas through net proceeds raised by Technology Ball.

Although our Technology Ball family is continually growing, many of our participating Executive Hosts and Sponsors have been a part of the Ball since it served as the annual fundraiser for a nonprofit organization. When the nonprofit organization closed its doors in 2014, we established DIGITAL CONDUIT to keep the Technology Ball active and thriving in the Dallas marketplace. DIGITAL CONDUIT is pleased to be operating as a “corporation for good” – a for-profit organization, similar to TOMS Footwear, Ben & Jerry’s or Newman’s Own, that donates net proceeds to our nonprofit partner, STEM students through UTD.

The partnership with the Dallas Foundation allows the Technology Ball team to focus on relationship building with our Executive Hosts and Sponsors, as well as event coordination details, while leaving the good work in the community to a team with that specific expertise. Since its inception, DIGITAL CONDUIT has driven significant impact in the STEM education space with a variety of partners, most recently with UTD benefitting STEM students. This allows UTD to receive an unparalleled fundraising event opportunity and visibility before key targets in the technology community, without dedicating any staff resources, whatsoever, to the efforts!

Thank you for being a part of the Technology Ball family and contributing to the continued success of philanthropic initiatives through scholarships and other education programs for the STEM students at the University of Texas at Dallas. Feel free to contact the team with question or comments.

The Dallas Foundation is the fiscal sponsor of Technology Ball (Digital Conduit) Fund of The Dallas Foundation, a component fund of The DallasFoundation, Federal Tax ID 75-2890371.
