Yesterday members of the community seized the opportunity to have their online donation maximized through North Texas Giving Day, an online giving campaign that amplifies individual gifts by a pool of $2.5 million in funds for charities across North Texas.

We are grateful to the 153 donors who invested a record-breaking $33,200 in 2016! All the funds will be amplified soon when the final tallies are made by the Communities Foundation.

The one-day cyber event boosts donations of $25 or more, making every dollar work harder to ensure the vital needs of each family in our community are met.

We realize that your resources are precious, so we are truly grateful to those who have made such a meaningful investment in the lives of others. We promise to be wise stewards of the funds given, so more families can find hope during a troubling season.

If you missed out on North Texas Giving Day, our website offers a 24/7 portal you can read about GRACE programs and make a tax-deductible donation.
