9TH annual north texas giving day

Our Friends Place excitement grows as the Communities Foundation of Texas’ 9th annual NORTH TEXAS GIVING DAY is around the corner! This special day builds awareness and support for nonprofits in North Texas and last year raised $37 million benefiting over 2,500 nonprofits. Online giving to OFP is as easy as clicking here https://northtexasgivingday.org/npo/our-friends-place on Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 6 a.m. until midnight.

New this year is scheduled gift giving between September 7th and September 13th. Donors can schedule Our Friends Place gifts in advance to be processed on September 14th by clicking the link above. For more information contact Brenda Snitzer.

North Texas Giving Day is important to OFP because donations go farther with matching funds, bonus funds and prizes. All donations qualify even those scheduled in advance. Prize awards include overall most unique donors based on agency size and largest increase in number of donors over last year. Plus, random awards drawn each hour and eligibility for women/girl focused prizes.  In 2016, OFP won a $2,000 second prize for most donors in the medium category!

As a kick-off to OFP’s 30th Anniversary in December we are asking Our Friends to support the young women we serve with a $30 donation this year. Every dollar you give helps provide a supportive home and programs for OFP clients. Your gift answers our call to action: 

Be a Friend. Change a Life.
