Talk about email box overload! Since kicking of the North Texas Giving Day Booster series, the MySweetCharity email postperson has been crippled from all the requests to have area nonprofits be included.
Unfortunately, out of the 2,000+ nonprofits gearing up for the Thursday, September 19, fundraising day, not all could be showcased on MySweetCharity. Thanks to NorthPark Center, the series was able to host 40 North Texas nonprofits participating in the 2019 North Texas Giving Day.
But how were they picked? It was a lengthy process that had the Communities Foundation of Texas team making the Solomon-like decisions on which organizations would be included. No, they didn’t put all 2,000+ nonprofits in a barrel and draw “the winners.” Rather it kicked off during the orientation meetings held in early June. Nonprofits were invited to apply for the MSC spots. While there were hundreds submitted, the final decisions were based on category, region and materials provided.
Were the right ones picked? Oh, please. Every one of the 2,000+ nonprofits is a pick of the litter and the Communities Foundation and MySweetCharity teams only regret that not all could be published here.
Please accept our sincere apologies if your nonprofit isn’t posted. But try to take a minute to read about the Boosters. Some you will know. Others will be a totally revelation.
And next year consider attending the orientation meetings to learn how to get included.
