Tomorrow! Tomorrow! We love you, tomorrow….
To paraphrase that singing ginger orphan girl, North Texas Giving Day is only 24 hours away!
That’s right, North Texas Giving Day is upon us and it’s always one of the best days of the year to witness the generosity of those in our greater metropolitan area.
Sure, we know there are chances to donate to your favorite non-profit organizations throughout the year, but the amazing thing about North Texas Giving Day is that your dollars go further. A bonus fund of $2.5 million dollars raised by Communities Foundation of Texas goes to organizations on a pro-rated basis based on the amount of money raised tomorrow.
Last year the bonus rate meant every donation between $25 and $50,000 saw a 7.5% bonus.
Not bad for a day’s work.
With more than 20 designated LGBT organizations seeking funding this year, you can make a difference in organizations that make a direct impact on our community. Whether it’s Resource Center, AIDS Services of Dallas, Turtle Creek Chorale, Uptown Players or perhaps lesser-known groups like Ed-U-CARE, Trans Pride Initiative or Tucker’s Gift, you can be sure your money is going to a worthy mission.
So check your bank statement, set your alarm clock and get ready to give until it feels fantastic.
Bet your bottom dollar.
North Texas Giving Day
