This afternoon there seemed to a slight lull in the 2022 North Texas Giving Day. Perhaps it was nap time for area donors. But as “happy hour” approached, the energy in fundraising perked up, with more than 71,000 donors kicking in $41.4M and 7,980 volunteers.
That means between now and midnight, the hoped-for record-breaker needs $25M dollars to be sent in.
BTW, the leaderboards have had some developments.
Northwood Woman’s Club has risen to the top of the Small Organizations with more than $84K, followed by a close competition between Denton Animal Support Foundation with more than $80K and Project Beloved: The Molly Jane Mission’s $79.7K.
Leading over all is Westland Academy Foundation, which is just inches away from hitting the $1M mark, with the North Texas Food Bank less than $500 away from $1M.
What a horse race this year’s fundraiser is turning out to be.
And it’s not just because the goal is to beat last year’s total. It’s thanks to the efforts of more than 3,000 area non-profits that day-in, day-out provide services for people you know, strangers you’ll never know and the generations to come.
