What is North Texas Giving Day?

North Texas Giving Day (NTGD) is an annual online giving event for nonprofits and is one of the most important opportunities for community exposure and donations to the 3to1 Foundation.

When is North Texas Giving Day?

The official Giving Day is Thursday, September 19, 2019 from 6:00 a.m. – midnight CST, with scheduled giving starting on Monday September 9.

Where is North Texas Giving Day?

NTGD is primarily an online event with donations made via the NorthTexasGivingDay.org
website.

What is the 3to1 Foundation’s Fundraising Goal?

Your support enables the 3to1 Foundation to teach financial concepts to youth and adults who don’t have access to this life-changing information. 100% of your donation goes toward this goal.

High School Programs – Through the 3to1 Foundation High School Programs, over 1000 North Texas teenagers have learned about topics such as:

  • Money growth
  • Budgeting
  • Debt management
  • Goal setting

Your donation gives our youth the tools they need to make sound financial decisions for a lifetime. Each seminar costs $2,500. You can help double the number of seminars from four to eight. Every dollar donated moves us toward this $20,000 goal.

Adult Financial Planning Programs – The Foundation’s Financial Planning series for adults gives people in our community the chance to learn financial concepts, so they can take charge of their financial future. Help increase the number of adult seminar attendees to 300, per year. Every dollar donated moves us toward this $10,000 goal.

Web-based, On Demand Financial Seminars – Our new seminars will give youth, adults, schools and other nonprofit organizations the ability to access our financial seminars. Development cost for this program is over $40,000. We are asking for seed money of $7,500 to begin this process.

Your donation will make a difference!

$30 – Gives an adult access to a financial seminar
$50 – Financial literacy for 2 high school students
$100 – Provides financial books for 20 students
$250 – Gives 8 adults the retirement info they need
$500 – Kick starts our web-based seminar
