Where Giving Shelters

Dan and Rebecca Tatsch, Record-Holding North Texas Giving Day Donors


CFT’s North Texas Giving Day is the annual, community-wide fundraising event that has pumped more than $195 million into North Texas charities over the last eight years. On 2017’s North Texas Giving Day, more than $39 million was donated to 2,723 nonprofits through 137,638 donations, setting a national record. Dan and Rebecca Tatsch themselves broke the record for the number of individual donations. They gave to 296 organizations.

For several years, the Tatsches have given to many nonprofits on North Texas Giving Day. Explaining their strategy of donating to so many charities, Dan said, “Our passion is animal rescue. We know from firsthand experience that it’s through small groups that animal rescue happens. On North Texas Giving Day, we saw a lot of these groups participating, and we know they’re working really hard.” For the recipients and the animals they care for, that kind of generosity makes for a very large number of best friends.
