North Texas Giving Day 2015

Stretch Your Donation Dollars on North Texas Giving Day

With this year’s North Texas Giving Day set for September 17, area nonprofits are already gearing up for another exhilarating day of giving. In just six one-day events, Giving Day has pumped $89 million into local nonprofits and broken three national giving day records since 2009. Last year, more than 98,000 gifts totaling $26.3 million were donated, benefiting more than 1,580 local nonprofits.

On September 17, donations can be made 6 a.m. to midnight to more than 1,500 certified nonprofits listed on www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org. Donations $25 and above will be amplified by $2 million in general bonus funds and prizes.

Additionally and new this year, the website will feature advanced functionality, allowing donors to search for nonprofits that have their own Challenge funds – additional money raised and set aside by individual nonprofits to amplify donations even further.

North Texas Giving Day Donation Station events are planned to occur across North Texas throughout the day. Events are free and open to the public. Scheduled Donation Stations include:

11 a.m. to 2 p.m. – Dallas County Donation Station and the 2nd annual Kids Give at Communities Foundation of Texas (5500 Caruth Haven Lane, Dallas, TX.) The Kids Give provides kids a chance to donate their loose change as well as do hands-on philanthropic and kid-friendly activities. Donors may watch the complimentary showcase performances by several nonprofits and purchase lunch from local food trucks.

5 p.m. to 7 p.m. – Collin County Donation Station in downtown McKinney Square (111 N. Tennessee St., McKinney, TX.)

5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. – Denton County Donation Station at the Denton Square on the Courthouse Green (110 West Hickory, Denton, TX).

More donation station events are being planned. For event updates, go to www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org.
