North Texas Giving Tuesday Now

April 14, 2020

CFT, Dallas Cowboys, and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas come together to raise critical funds for COVID-19 relief and recovery now through May 5


CFT has partnered with the Dallas Cowboys and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas to create a special emergency response day of giving called North Texas Giving Tuesday Now, as a regional activation of the global Giving Tuesday movement, #GivingTuesdayNow.

Nonprofits of all types — from the arts to education, social services, and zoos — are struggling in this unprecedented time. The three partners are leading the community in safely uniting from home to raise funds for the broad range of North Texas nonprofits affected by the pandemic. North Texas Giving Tuesday Now runs online through CFT’s North Texas Giving Day platform. Donors can support targeted relief and recovery funds with a gift of any amount, give directly to organizations on the front lines of the COVID-19 response, and/or support the needs of more than 3,000 local nonprofits that participated in North Texas Giving Day 2019.

“This is about inspiring local unity, action, and generosity. Our community, country, and world need our support now more than ever.” – Dave Scullin, CFT’s president and CEO

“This crisis can be a defining moment of solidarity. Our nonprofits are on the front lines, and they need everyone’s generous support to respond to the unprecedented need created by this pandemic.” – Jennifer Sampson, president and CEO of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas

“There is no greater need for solidarity and partnership than during a crisis. Especially in North Texas, where there is momentous support for local nonprofits, the Dallas Cowboys are eager to mobilize and energize our region to respond.” – Charlotte Jones, Dallas Cowboys vice president and chief brand officer
CFT’s 12th annual North Texas Giving Day will still be held on September 17, 2020, in addition to this special one-time campaign. Giving Tuesday also still plans to hold its annual global campaign the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
