North Texas Giving Day is this Thursday, Sept. 14. It’s one of the biggest ways for North Texans to give a little (or a lot) to thousands of nonprofits who rely on the donations from campaigns like this. How can I help? Who does this benefit? We’ve got you covered.

What: North Texas Giving Day is the “annual 18-hour online giving extravaganza for North Texas nonprofits that is powered by creative nonprofits, social media activism, area wide collaboration, and of course, you.”

Who: In Dallas alone, there are more than 1,400 nonprofits who will be taking donations. These nonprofits benefit animals, education, the environment, mental health and disabilities, and more. Here in Preston Hollow, private schools benefit the most from the marathon fundraiser. Ursuline raised $412,572, and Alcuin received $340,155 in 2016.

When: Sept. 14 from 6 a.m. to midnight

Where: Donate online at Have your credit cards at the ready. NorthPark Center also is one of the event’s donation centers, where several nonprofits perform and solicit donations from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Why: During last year’s 18-hour event, $37 million was collected for more than 2,500 nonprofits. Since 2009, NTX Giving Day has received $155 million in donations.
