Going the Distance, At A Distance

September 15, 2020

CFT's 12th annual North Texas Giving Day is back to bring hope to our community

When we think about light, joy, and finding intentional reasons to celebrate this year,
we can think of few better places to look than North Texas Giving Day. We are thrilled that for its 12th year, this annual giving extravaganza will unite the community, enter neighbors’ hearts and homes, and empower regional organizations to continue doing the work that helps our communities thrive.

North Texas Giving Day is back on September 17, 2020, with high hopes for our neighbors and friends to go the distance, even at a distance. With more than 3,000 nonprofits registered, myriad causes that have increased, and nuanced needs because of the challenging issues of our time, we know that our community needs us now more than ever.

We also know that North Texas is strong, resilient, and committed. We know that when there’s a need, we stand up to it. We stand up for each other, and we make change happen. That’s how we’re approaching North Texas Giving Day, and it’s the way we’re approaching you, our most generous community.

We’re asking YOU to take time to consider what matters to you. We’re asking YOU to be a part of the movement that keeps us strong, vibrant, and moving.

And with you, we know we can do it.
