The 10th Annual North Texas Giving Day
Our Friends Place excitement grows as we plan for Communities Foundation of Texas’ 10th annual NORTH TEXAS GIVING DAY! This special day builds awareness and support for nonprofits in North Texas and last year raised over $39 million benefiting over 2,700 nonprofits. Online giving to OFP is as easy as clicking here on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 6 a.m. until midnight.
There are some new ways to participate in North Texas Giving Day this year. Starting August 16th, donors can create their own Peer-to-Peer FUNdraising pages allowing donors to connect and engage their network to help fundraise for OFP.
Additionally, scheduled gift giving was a huge success last year so now there are more days to plan your gifts in advance starting September 10th through September 19th. All scheduled donations are processed on September 20th. For more information contact Caitlin Doepfner.
North Texas Giving Day is important to OFP because donations go farther with bonus funds and prizes. All donations qualify even those scheduled in advance. Example prize awards include overall most unique donors based on agency size and the largest increase in the number of donors over last year. We are especially honored to share that in 2016 and 2017 OFP received prizes for Women/Girl Focused Dallas County Medium Nonprofit with the Most Donors category!
For the past 30 years, your gifts have allowed Our Friends Place to provide a secure and stable home for young women to build their own futures. As we continue to celebrate OFP's 30th Anniversary we are asking Our Friends to give $30 or more. Every dollar you give helps provide a supportive home plus residential and nonresidential programs for young women. Your gift answers our call to action:
