North Texas Giving Day
Join TeamConnor on Thursday, September 14, 2017 for North Texas Giving Day, an online giving event for people across the nation to come together to raise as much money as possible for North Texas charities.
On September 14 from 6 am (CST) to Midnight, you can give to TeamConnor at www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org and your donation of $25 to $50,000 is eligible in bonus funds and prizes from the Communities Foundation of Texas.
North Texas Giving Day is not just a day, it’s a movement to inspire and unite tens of thousands of donors! In 2016, the event raised $37 million for more than 2,000 nonprofits, including TeamConnor!
Since 2009 Communities Foundation of Texas’ North Texas Giving Day has pumped $156 million, for over 2,500 local nonprofits, into the North Texas Community.
The 2016 North Texas Giving Day raised the largest amount in the event’s history for the fifth year in a row, and the largest amount for a single online community “Giving Day” in the nation. Nonprofit organizations and supporters celebrated the 18-hour day of fundraising with community-wide Donation Station events in Dallas, Arlington, Denton, Fort Worth and McKinney featuring performances by “The Voice” finalist Luke Wade, Oaktopia’s Texas Gentlemen, and nonprofits as well as children’s activities and much more.
The astounding $37 million raised for 2,518 nonprofits from more than 142,700 donations exceeded last year’s totals of $33.1 million and 118,000 donations. This is the first time in the event’s eight-year history that all participating nonprofits received a gift. Donations poured in from all 50 states and 39 countries at a rate of nearly $34,500 per minute.
For nonprofits, North Texas Giving Day serves as another awareness-building and fundraising tool.
