A Letter From Our President

September 16, 2019

Dave Scullin, President and CEO of Communities Foundation of Texas

It’s been a busy season of giving here in North Texas. While many might  typically think of year-end as the season of giving, at Communities Foundation of Texas, giving happens year-round, and we couldn’t be more honored to support you. Each day, we see firsthand that where giving and caring thrive, communities thrive too. This latest edition of IMPACT is filled with stories of just that, highlighting a variety of ways we’re partnering with businesses, nonprofits, educators, professional advisors, individuals and families.

We continue to be amazed at our community’s generosity, which was so evident throughout our recent partnership with D CEO Magazine to launch the inaugural Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards. In early August, 450 business, community and nonprofit leaders gathered together to honor and uplift the incredible companies and nonprofits working to make lasting positive change in North Texas. The inaugural awards received a record-breaking number of nominations for D CEO, 340, which underscored the depth and breadth of North Texas generosity.

On another exciting front, North Texas Giving Day is soon approaching on September 20, and it’s a very special 10th anniversary year! We’re hoping to continue to break national records. In honor of the 10th anniversary, you’ll have 10 days to schedule your gift online at NorthTexasGivingDay.org. We encourage you to join us, along with your families, and give your time too! During our  10 days of scheduled giving, there will be a number of volunteer activities for  you to help nonprofit organizations in meaningful ways. There will also be multiple fun rallies along the way.

We hope you’ll join us in the giving celebration to help bring people together  to give wisely to our North Texas nonprofits. In nine years, together we’ve raised $195 million to help meet local needs through this community-wide giving event. What will 2018 bring? We can’t wait to find out. With your help, we can make  the 10th anniversary one to remember for a lifetime.
