North Texas Giving Day is here! Time and again, the community rises to the occasion to raise more money for more great nonprofits each year. The can-do attitude makes this community a great place in which to live!
Donating in an organized Day of Giving such as North Texas Giving Day will give you confidence your donation is going to a qualified nonprofit with a majority of its activities in the local area. What an array of choices this year! Over 2,000 nonprofits signed up to participate, and Communities Foundation of Texas has secured more than $2M in matching funds for all qualified donations. Just over 10% of the nonprofits—including Jericho Road Dallas—secured their own challenge funds. So all day long, your donation, your investment in the community, is amplified by additional dollars. With Jericho Road Dallas, your $100 becomes $300 to us! It can’t get better than that!
