Your gift makes a difference!

It is only through the generosity of many individuals, combined with grants from private foundations and municipal agencies, that Texas Winds’ audiences experience the joy and power of live performances. We welcome gifts from individuals at any time, and recognize our donors in our Year-End Report in July.

One-time and recurring gifts may be made through PayPal and Network For Good in honor or in memory of loved ones.

You can also support Texas Winds through AmazonSmile and Tom Thumb’s Good Neighbor Program (#2335). You can learn more about Texas Wind’s non-profit status on GuideStar.


Two Ways to Give: Donate to the Catherine Barr Legacy Campaign or our Annual Giving Fund


About the Catherine Barr Legacy Campaign

In the fall of 1985, Catherine Barr discovered in the residents of a Dallas nursing home an unusual audience for her woodwind quintet’s music. The musicians’ desire to exhibit their craft in live performance matched the need of the residents for life-affirming human interaction. In a beautiful surprise, the musicians were awakened to the potential for sharing love and compassion in a unique concert setting.

Over the ensuing thirty-three years, this discovery evolved into Texas Winds Musical Outreach, which has touched the lives of thousands of isolated seniors, hospital patients, veterans and children throughout North Texas.

In light of Catherine’s decision to retire as Texas Winds’ founding executive director, the board of directors is honoring her service by establishing the Catherine Barr Legacy Campaign to build the Texas Winds Endowment Fund.
