The Dallas Mavericks owner is being recognized for his transformative leadership. As the threat of COVID-19 spread across North Texas, Cuban stood up as a prominent hero for those on the front line—directing his NBA team and its foundation to do hands-on work throughout the community. As Black Lives Matters protests formed in Dallas—and across the globe—he hosted courageous conversations about systemic racism.
“His customary approach to philanthropy lends support to nonprofit organizations with missions ranging from health care research and patient care support, hunger relief and education to women’s leadership initiatives, veteran’s causes and disaster relief, to name a few,” said UT Southwestern President Daniel Podolsky, who was among those who nominated Cuban for the award. “Mark’s personal and corporate giving through the Mavs Foundation provides foundational strength to organizations on the front line of community change and improvement—and now, on the front line of fighting for the community against COVID-19.”
