Thursday, September 19th was North Texas Giving Day. Communities Foundation of Texas founded North Texas Giving Day in 2009. Since then, donors have raised $60 million for local nonprofits on five designated “giving days,” when any donation of $25 or more is amplified by millions of dollars in bonus funds thanks to a unique partnership with DonorBridge.
Each year, it seems Giving Day keeps getting bigger and bigger. In fact, this year it exceeded the national record by raising more than $25.2 million in 17 hours, surpassing 2012 results by $10.8 million. Arms of Hope received 49 gifts totaling $22,705 in donations. We will also be given an additional 6.4 % matching gift from Communities Foundation of Texas and a $2,500 bonus prize from The Harold Simmons Foundation.
You made a difference when you got up and gave!
