What is North Texas Giving Day?
"Communities Foundation of Texas’ North Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform.
The event helps build awareness and support for nonprofits like nothing else. In 2019, $50 million was raised through 102,000 donors benefiting 3,000 local nonprofits, bringing the eleven-year total to over $290 million for our community. North Texas Giving Day is the largest community-wide giving event in the nation.
Since its inception in 2009, this online event has transformed from an idea to help local people give wisely, to a movement that has ignited a broad culture of community-wide giving. During North Texas Giving Day, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community. This year, the 12th annual North Texas Giving Day will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2020." (https://www.northtexasgivingday.org/about)
How it works:
We will be marketing our cause to reach as many people as we can reach to gain awareness for our organization. We will be sending emails to local business owners, and you may even catch us out in the community sharing the message of who we are, and the different ways we serve the community. You will also see plenty of posts on social media about this exciting event! Then, on September 17th, North Texas Giving Day 2020 will spring into action; donors will be able to access our fundraising pages to make donations of money and/or volunteer their time to thousands of North Texas nonprofit organizations just like us!
