We asked Plano Moms everywhere to nominate their favorite charities to support on September 20th for North Texas Giving Day!
What is NTX Giving Day?
One day a year, for every dollar you donate to Charity, sponsors amplify it with generous bonus funds throughout the community. Some qualify for matching gifts. Communities Foundation of Texas launched North Texas Giving Day in 2009. In 2016, the 18-hour event raised over $37 million for 2,500+ nonprofits.
For those who are close to your heart, if you are wanting to give this year, September 20th is the best day to do so.
