The Legacy Project

laying a foundation for learning

The Legacy Project

We are so thankful for our new facility! It is already home to 750 refugees per week who are participating in English, citizenship, literacy, GED, preschool, after-school, and enrichment classes (like art and dance for children)! Each of these refugees from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East hear the gospel daily, receive help through our family services department, and have the opportunity for counseling, trauma healing, and Bible studies each week. We are SO thankful!


And, we have more great news! A generous donor has given a matching grant of $220,000 from now until October 31. We have already raised $117,500, and are in need of just $103,000 more!  Anything given up to $220,000 between now and the 31st will be matched dollar for dollar at 100%. Click below to donate, or mail a check to the address below with “match” in the memo. These funds will be used to provide enough parking for refugee students, a kitchen to use daily for snacks and meals, and a playground for several hundred children. All donations are tax deductible.


Thank you all so much for your partnership in the Legacy Project, our new facility which is now functioning as a refugee school and church as well as giving us a permanent physical presence in the community! We are so thankful for God’s provision through you all, and for the opportunity to continue sharing the hope that we have in Christ with our new neighbors from around the world!

The Legacy Project is a capital campaign of For the Nations: Refugee Outreach (FTNRO) to purchase vacant land and construct a refugee school that will allow us to have a physical presence in the refugee community.

For the Nations started helping refugees in 2006 and, since incorporating in 2011, has grown to be one of the largest refugee services in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area. While we have experienced an exponential growth rate in recent years, FTNRO has also exceeded our physical capacity as an organization. This year alone, hundreds of refugees that need both education and assistance will be turned away because of our lack of classroom space. We are turning away refugees daily. If we wish to continue performing amongst the top tier of refugee organizations in our area and produce top quality programming for our students, it is essential to expand our organizational and physical capacity.

After finding no suitable existing spaces in our target location, we have launched a fundraising project to build an approximately 14,500 SF commercial school for our refugees on 3 acres of vacant land in Garland, Texas. This would allow us to instantly double our available classroom areas, refugee services, and organizational capacity.

We respectfully request that you consider a financial partnership with us in this phase of our capital campaign. Your gift at this critical point provides important momentum for us moving forward. It is only through the generosity of men and women who sacrifice financially for the sake of the gospel that refugees are able to receive quality English, Bible, and acculturating education. In the capital campaign brochure found on this page, we have outlined the pertinent financial information regarding our Legacy Project and simply ask that you consider being apart of our work.
