For the fourth year, SVdP is participating in North Texas Giving Day!
What is North Texas Giving Day (NTGD)?
North Texas Giving Day is the largest annual online giving event in the US. Each year, hundreds of groups host their own giving page through a secure, easy-to-use site powered by the Communities Foundation of Texas. Last year, nonprofits raised over $39 million from donors from all over the world!
During this 18-hour giving extravaganza, donors can search their favorite North Texas-based nonprofits, track their giving information and see the amounts raised by each group.
But wait: It gets even better.
The CFT offers bonus funds and prizes; this means that donations made through North Texas Giving Day on Thursday, September 20 are multiplied! The more we raise, the more those dollars grow, and the more we can help people in need by growing our programs and helping our local chapters provide emergency assistance.
This huge event makes our organization visible to thousands of people who are invested in making our North Texas community a better place. And not only can our page visitors give financially, but for the first time this year, they can pledge their time to volunteer opportunities on our events page! Our presence in the North Texas community is magnified, gifts are multiplied, and we’re able to connect with people striving to relieve poverty in concert with the mission of St. Vincent de Paul.
How can you get involved?
