NTX Giving Day

40 Charities to Support on NTX Giving Day!

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.

Here are some ideas for how we can teach our kids about the importance of charity



Hi, I’m Abbie, super mom, and busy-bee who moved to Plano from London, England with my husband and 2 kids, Jesse and Lucy, in the Summer of 2013. Plano Moms was my lifeline when I arrived as I didn’t know anyone or anything about my new city that I now called home. Where did I start to make friends and meet moms like me? How did I know who were the best hairstylists, or dentists or pre-school options for my kids? Which area should I look for to find the right home and school for my son? All these questions were answered by Plano Moms, like me. I found a lifeline in it and chose to build it into the community it is today – 15,000 moms sharing ideas, tips, referrals and making connections with each other through Social Media, Planomoms.com, events & regular email newsletters! When I’m not being a Plano Mom or being a taxi service to my kids, I am coaching & consulting local businesses, working out, cooking and reading (when I find the time!)
