Save the Date! North Texas Giving Day is September 19

For the second year in a row, Methodist Children’s Home will participate in North Texas Giving Day on September 19. This annual fundraising event raised over $39,000 in a single day for our ministry last year.

North Texas Giving Day is an online fundraising event hosted by Communities Foundation of Texas. Exemplary nonprofit organizations such as MCH are approved to participate in the event and qualify to receive bonus funds for each donation made to their organization that day. From 7 a.m. to midnight on September 19, all donations made to MCH of at least $25 will be multiplied if donated through, an online resource connecting donors to nonprofits. MCH will also be eligible for additional bonus prizes by participating.

“North Texas Giving Day is an exciting way to invite current and first-time donors from all over the U.S. to support those we serve at MCH,” said Lyle Mason, director of benefactor relations at MCH. “The fact that a percentage of every gift is multiplied should encourage many to participate. I hope everyone spreads the word and we surpass last year’s total.”

All money raised for MCH during North Texas Giving Day will go directly to meet childcare needs, not administrative costs. So, save the date and participate!  If you have any questions regarding North Texas Giving Day, don’t hesitate to contact Lyle Mason at 254-315-5193.
