On Thursday, September 14, 2017, Connecting City To Farm is participating in Communities Foundation of Texas’s ninth annual North Texas Giving Day, a one day online giving extravaganza! Our organization battles hunger and promotes health by taking underserved children to working farms and teaching them where their food is grown. We teach them how to sustain their bodies and their environment. North Texas Giving Day will help us provide even more farm experiences to our underserved neighbors.
Last year, more than 2,500 organizations in 16 counties came together to celebrate North Texas Giving Day and raised over $37 million. Since 2009, North Texas Giving Day has inspired giving from around the world, resulting in increased donations and services provided. We invite you to join the movement and help us reach our goal of $10,000 on September 14th.
Here’s how you can join the movement:
1. Get up and give on September 14th!
Make your dollar stretch further! Our terrific Board of Directors has pooled their resources to create a dollar-for-dollar matching opportunity up to $5,000. That means on September 14th if you donate to our organization on NorthTexasGivingDay.org between 6am and midnight your dollar will be doubled! Also, each donation gives Connecting City To Farm entries to win bonus funds and prizes raised by the Communities Foundation of Texas! Your donation will help us receive extra funds for our work in the community. This year you can schedule your gift between September 7 and September 14 or make your gift on September 14 by visiting https://northtexasgivingday.org
