Let's Get This Giving Party Started!

September 16, 2019

Join us to make the 10th annual event the best ever

Now the largest online giving event in the nation, North Texas Giving Day has supported and empowered more than 3,800 nonprofits to raise $195 million dollars and move their missions forward. This  online event has been transformative for nonprofits and donors alike, igniting a movement of giving and changing the face of philanthropy with the clarion call  to get up and give!

This year, North Texas Giving Day is September 20, 2018, and CFT is rallying people to again give locally and wisely to North Texas organizations. With fun  new features, giving on North Texas Giving Day is easier than it’s ever been. Donors can schedule their gifts beginning September 10, and can support  multiple organizations with even better mobile functionality—and a new app!

“Our goal was to raise $50,000 to complete our Activity Room for special needs adults. At midnight on North Texas Giving Day we had raised $45,000. We were SO thrilled to receive a call the following morning announcing that we had won first-place prize in our category for the organization with the largest increase in number of donors. Now we are able to complete the room which will give our adults room to have additional classes, socials, dances and an indoor sports area.” —SOARING EAGLE CENTER

“Through North Texas Giving Day, Pamper Lake Highlands was able to secure five times the amount of donations that were acquired in 2016. North Texas Giving Day has been the catalyst for providing more critical programming which helps break the cycle of generational poverty and oppression for local women and children, as well as provide pivotal branding opportunities.” —PAMPER LAKE HIGHLANDS

“We were able to raise enough money to extend our program to help single mothers displaced by Hurricane Harvey! We have started house renovations and will be able to move some women in soon to help them rebuild a sustaining life.” —AGAPE RESOURCES & ASSISTANCE CENTER

“This was our first year to have a matching fund. We were nervous because this required a HUGE increase in what we normally raised. We went from about 35 donors to about 55 donors, and met our goal exactly. Most of our donors gave, and we added many new ones. I know this matching fund is what made more people give!” —PROJECT ACCESS TARRANT COUNTY

We met our goal of raising $3 for every neighbor we will serve in 2017, nearly $90,000, and we exceeded our goal and hit over $100,000.” —CITYSQUARE
