The seventh annual North Texas Giving Day happens Thursday, hoping for a fourth straight year of record breaking community giving.
This year includes more than 2,000 nonprofits, $2.2 million in bonus funds and prizes and donation station events at five North Texas cities: Arlington; Dallas; Denton; Fort Worth; and McKinney.
Here’s how it works: You donate $25-$50,000 between 6 a.m. to midnight on September 17, 2015 to the nonprofits participating.
Some groups participating include: Patriot PAWS; Angel Flight South Central; Canine Companions for Independence; American Red Cross North Texas Region; Dallas Bethlehem Center, Inc.; Cuisine for Healing; Keep Flower Mound Beautiful; Crosstimbers Ranch Wildlife Center; and the American Diabetes Association.
The Denton County Donation Station event will be from 5-7:30 p.m. at Denton Square on the Courthouse Green. There will be live music, prizes, nonprofit booths and activities for kids.
North Texas Giving Day was launched in 2009 by Communities Foundation of Texas. It has helped infuse $86 million into nonprofits in the 16-county North Texas region. Check out how it helps the Humane Society of Flower Mound in this video.
