Today is North Texas Giving Day, an opportunity for local non-profit organizations to win cash prizes and (partial) matching funds by getting donations and social media shares.

GivingDay

Why Participate?

  1. Your donations help your community.
  2. If you donate at least $25 the organization¬†qualifies for some of the $2.4 million in “bonus funds”
  3. Donations are 100% tax-deductible

How Do You Participate?

Go to NorthTexasGivingDay.org today (before midnight), search for an organization (by name, category or location) and make your donation via credit card. There are links on the site to GuideStar profiles, so you can check out an organization further if you prefer.

A $1000 prize will be awarded to the nonprofit that, using hashtag #NTXGivingDay, is able to secure the most re-tweets on a single tweet sent out between Monday, September 14th and Thursday, September 17th. So you can help the non profits of your choice via social media too.
