Mr. G. Ward Beaudry

    Mr. G. Ward Beaudry was one of 400 Dallas Exchange Club members who in 1992 together established The Exchange Club Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse of DFW, Inc. (EXCAP), our agency, known today as Family Compass. Mr. G. Ward Beaudry was one of the longest serving board members of Family Compass and his memory lives on in our work. He remained a key Lake Highlands Exchange Club liaison for the agency throughout his 23-year tenure and served as the organization’s “Of Counsel”. In 2017, he was honored with the esteemed Spirit of Compassion award, along with other founders of Family Compass at the 25th anniversary celebration, Legends and Lights.

Family Compass may use your information for other internal purposes, including communications to make you aware of how your donations are being spent, events, newsletters, and other general information relating to Family Compass.

Family Compass would release personally identifiable data about you, if necessary, in order to comply with valid legal processes such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order.
