Chris Curry

Director of Gift Planning


Chris Curry joined Family Research Council in 2008 to lead FRC's Charitable Gift Planning efforts. In this capacity, he assists supporters across the country in achieving their overall stewardship goals utilizing both simple and complex measures. Often, this involves underwriting FRC and other ministries with non-traditional gifts like appreciated assets and estate provisions, as well as establishing life-income arrangements and more.  Additionally, Chris serves as the Assistant to the President of FRC in some select states.

With over twenty-five years’ experience in gift planning and development, Chris previously held similar positions with The Salvation Army and the American Bible Society. A graduate of Colorado Tech with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration, he has also received numerous years of specialized training, including the completion of the National Planned Giving Institute at the College of William and Mary. Through this, Chris has become well versed in a wide variety of giving opportunities which aid people in managing what God has entrusted to them.

Chris and his wife, Dawne, have four daughters. Together, they are actively engaged in their community and church, serving in roles with the local schools, small group bible study leadership, the worship arts team, and their church overseer’s board.
