The legacy of a leader in the Dallas GLBTQ community for almost four decades. The Trust supports non-profit, community-based organizations in Dallas County, Texas.


The Anthony Bobrow Trust has completed delivery of over a Quarter-Million dollars, another $60,000 planned for next week, with at least another $50,000 in the rest of this year to support the work of non-profits providing vital services to our community.

Harvey Meissner, Co-Trustee, presented checks to A.I.N., Legacy Hope, Cathedral Charities, AIDS Services of Dallas and the Resource Center. “With these we’ve put over $2.3MILLION back into our neighborhood since 2018. In addition to this $250,000 we’re finalizing another $60,000 this week, with at least $50,000 planned for later this year. That provides life-saving and life-changing assistance to thousands in Dallas County. We also support groups in Tony’s hometown, Teague, Texas, with well over $350,000 since 2018.

Tony Bobrow left his entire Estate to make life better for the people he cared about. The non-profits we support are ‘boots on the ground’, making a difference in lives every day. Our contributions are unrestricted and can be used for what the organizations see as their priorities.”

“In 2018 we had no idea numbers like this were achievable. Although Tony left his Trust well-funded, it’s the Hidden Door customers who make much of this possible. To them goes the credit and thanks for helping continue these donations.”

“We’re not a non-profit and don’t file public returns with the IRS. The State of Texas says Trust management usually costs from 1-1.5% of total assets annually. Ours are a very tiny fraction of 1 percent.” The Anthony Bobrow Trust is supported in part by The Hidden Door, Dallas, celebrating its 43rd anniversary this December. Its net profits are pledged to the Bobrow Trust. “
