If we know anything at Dallas Doing Good, it is that there is no shortage of local organizations and nonprofits dedicated to promoting good in the DFW community. For the last five years, our goal has been to share the stories of these Dallas do-gooders, and now, we are excited to continue our mission by partnering with the Communities Foundation of Texas for this year’s North Texas Giving Day (NTXGD).
Communities Foundation of Texas’ North Texas Giving Day is an online giving event that encourages everyone to give back to their community by supporting the causes they care about. NTXGD has helped raise awareness and support for North Texas nonprofits since 2009, raising over $441 million over the last 13 years. The annual event inspires a culture of community-wide giving with the belief that “everyone can find their passion and give with purpose.”
For the past four years, Dallas Doing Good has partnered with NTXGD to highlight the stories of giving day, from long-time contributors to local nonprofits making a difference. At Dallas Doing Good, we hope to raise awareness of giving day and encourage people to give to their favorite organization.
NTXGD will be held on Thursday, September 22, so mark the date in your calendar and visit northtexasgivingday.org to browse participating organizations. For more opportunities to give back to local organizations, check out the volunteer page here on our website.
