Will Be Honored in Dallas at 2015 Annual Meeting of The Philanthropy Roundtable


WASHINGTON, D.C.— Houston-area homebuilder and philanthropist David Weekley has been named the recipient of the 2015 William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership, an annual award administered by The Philanthropy Roundtable that highlights the power of philanthropy to promote positive change and to inspire others to support charities that achieve genuine results. The prize is intended to honor living philanthropists who have shown exemplary leadership through their own charitable giving, either directly or through foundations they have created.


“This is a prestigious award that I am honored to accept. I consistently strive to do something positive with everything that I have been blessed with, and to be recognized for that effort is truly a privilege. I am humbled to be mentioned among the recipients of this award,” Weekley said.


“My father took very seriously the responsibility of being a good steward. David Weekley fulfills that ideal by taking great care in his charitable giving and setting a standard of excellence for other philanthropists to follow. I know my father would be proud to have him receive this award,” said William E. Simon, Jr., co-chairman of the William E. Simon Foundation.


Weekley is a passionate supporter of programs that develop character, from the Boy Scouts to the Positive Coaching Alliance to Young Life. An active player in education reform, Weekley supports KIPP, YES Prep, and Cristo Rey schools. He is a community leader, serving on the boards of professional and nonprofit organizations throughout the Houston area. Weekley gives not only of his wealth but also of himself.


“David Weekley is the consummate example of selfless giving. For more than two decades, he has lived by the principle of donating 50 percent of both his money and his time to charitable service. His commitment to strengthening our free society is the personification of the ideals the Simon Prize is meant to honor,” added Adam Meyerson, president of The Philanthropy Roundtable.


Weekley founded a homebuilding company at the age of 23, with a capital investment from his brother, Dick. Since 1976, Weekley Homes has grown to become the largest privately held homebuilder in America, expanding to 20 metropolitan areas and closing over $1.3 billion worth of new homes in 2014. As president of the David Weekley Family Foundation, he practices a venture-philanthropy model of investing treasure, time, and talent to grow nonprofits and social enterprises serving the poor and disadvantaged. The foundation’s international portfolio concentrates on improving education, health, and economic opportunity, with a focus on helping young, innovative organizations expand their proven models to reduce global poverty.


Weekley will be honored on Thursday, October 15, at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas in Las Colinas, Texas during a special lunch at the 2015 Annual Meeting of The Philanthropy Roundtable. The prize includes a $250,000 award, payable to a charity designated by the winner.


The William E. Simon Foundation created the William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership to further Bill Simon Sr.’s ideals and principles of personal responsibility, resourcefulness, volunteerism, scholarship, individual freedom, faith in God, and helping people to help themselves. Previous winners of the William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership include Jon Huntsman Sr., Eli and Edythe Broad, Bernie Marcus, Charles Koch, Roger Hertog, Phil and Nancy Anschutz, Dr. Ben Carson, David Robinson, the late Sir John Templeton, and the late John Walton.



The Philanthropy Roundtable is America’s leading network of charitable donors working to strengthen our free society, uphold donor intent, and protect the freedom to give. Our members include individual philanthropists, families, and private foundations.
