North Texas Giving Day 2014
Join 103.7 KVIL for the sixth annual North Texas Giving Day! Aiming to raise the giving day bar once again to benefit more North Texas nonprofits. On September 18, 2014, donations can be made 6 a.m. to midnight to more than 1,600 certified nonprofits listed on the new website NorthTexasGivingDay.org. Donations $25 and above will be amplified by $2 million in bonus funds and prizes.
“Giving Day is a wonderful day to celebrate the community and support the important work of nonprofits serving North Texas,” said Brent Christopher, president and CEO, Communities Foundation of Texas and North Texas Giving Day founder. “Each year, we are amazed by the continued generosity of the donors that participate in this day and we hope that this year we raise even more money for North Texas nonprofits.”
Also new this year is the inaugural North Texas Giving Day Kids Give at Communities Foundation of Texas. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Kids Give sponsored by DFWChild provides kids a chance to donate their loose change as well as do hands-on philanthropic and kid-friendly activities, including assembling ‘Hope’ packages for kids in the hospital, donating canned foods, planting seeds for community gardens and making pet toys for shelter animals. Donors may watch the complimentary showcase performances by several nonprofits and purchase lunch from local food trucks. A schedule of performers, kids activities and food trucks will be updated on the “Party at CFT” page on NorthTexasGivingDay.org.
