Want to Give Back? Consider Participating In North Texas Giving Day Tomorrow

North Texas Giving Day

If you’ve thought about giving to a nonprofit, there is no better day than tomorrow.

North Texas Giving Day is an online fundraising event that makes it easy for people to donate to a variety of North Texas nonprofits in one day. Last year, they raised a record $33.1 million for 2,020 organizations. This year, more than 2,500 area nonprofits have registered with the Communities Foundation of Texas, which founded the event in 2009.

Part of what makes this event special is the matching funds: This year, there are $25 million to match or partially match many of the donations made tomorrow. That means your dollars go further to help out some truly wonderful nonprofits in the local work they do.
