The 15th annual North Texas Giving Day, hosted by the Communities Foundation of Texas, began at 6 a.m. today with an impressive start with an Early Giving total of $20 million in donations.
In a display of solidarity for North Texas nonprofit organizations and community of donors, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker, Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney and McKinney Mayor George Fuller jointly proclaimed September 21, 2023, as North Texas Giving Day. Early Giving Day commenced on Sept. 20, 2023, bringing in almost $20 million.
“North Texas Giving Day is for everyone, and every gift matters,” Monica Christopher, senior vice president, chief giving and community impact officer at Communities Foundation of Texas previously said. “North Texas Giving Day empowers every local nonprofit and every North Texan to raise the bar of generosity, and to deepen our sense of community support, pride and impact.”
Encompassing the expansive North Texas region comprising 20 counties, this annual event brings together donors from across the nation to rally behind local nonprofits. Celebrating its 15th year, the event boasts participation from over 3,300 organizations. Whether contributing online or partaking in upcoming events, individuals have the opportunity to connect with the causes that resonate with them the most.
“During NTX Giving Day, everyone can find their passion, and give with purpose, uniting to build a stronger and more vibrant community,” a statement from Communities Foundation of Texas read.
During last year’s event over 3,000 nonprofits stand to benefit from the fundraiser. Of those were 382 Collin County nonprofits which received nearly $7.5 million in total donations.
Contributions can be extended to over 3,300 nonprofits featured here until midnight tonight. Donations of one dollar or more can be made out to any of the participating nonprofits at NorthTexasGivingDay.org via Apple Pay, PayPal, Venmo or credit card.
