NORTH TEXAS GIVING DAY

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2017

5 PM - 8 PM

For the fourth consecutive year, Volunteer McKinney is partnering up with Communities Foundation of Texas and hosting Collin County Giving Day Party in the Park, featuring 70 nonprofit booths, music, dance performances and entertainment; food trucks; and sports demonstrations. 

"We are excited about our Party in The Park event," said Dana Riley, Executive Director.  "This year promises to be bigger and better as we have more organizations, live entertainment, food and fun.  It is always an honor to partner with Communities Foundation of Texas to help bring the community together for this special day of giving."

North Texas Giving Day is Communities Foundation of Texas' (CFT) annual 18-hour online giving extravaganza that brings together the 16 counties of North Texas. The day is powered by creative nonprofits, social media activism, area wide collaboration, and the enthusiasm of the North Texas community! North Texas Giving Day's goal is to make giving easy for donors, while helping build awareness and support for nonprofits in North Texas. Since 2009, North Texas Giving Day has pumped $156 million into the North Texas community. In 2016, $37 million was raised through more than 142,000 gifts benefiting 2,518 nonprofits.
