This is the 9th annual North Texas Giving Day. Last year was a record-breaking year with $37 million donated.
Last year, North Texans gave 142,000 gifts that supported 2,500 local non-profit organizations.
?As far as giving days go, this is the super bowl,? said President & CEO of Communities Foundation of Texas Dave Scullin.
How you can participate:
On Thursday, Sept. 14 from 6 a.m. you can online at the North Texas Giving Day website to make a donation to any of the 2,000 nonprofits participating.
The categories range from animals, arts, and education, to organizations that support veterans and senior citizens.
Don’t forget the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Many North Texas organizations are supporting Harvey evacuees in our area and could use continued support.
Donors will have the option to make an additional gift to support recovery efforts.
Anyone can donate — businesses, foundations, funds or individuals can partake in the bonus fund pool. If you don’t have a particular cause or non-profit you’d like to help, donating to the pool is an option.

- Dallas County Donation Station at NorthPark Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Fort Worth Donation Station at Sundance Square Plaza from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
