The largest community-wide giving day in the nation is coming up, and it’s right here in our backyard! North Texas Giving Day established in 2009 by the Communities Foundation of Texas, a leading community foundation responsible for distributing $1.5 billion in grants over its 63 year history, will take place September 22, 6am – midnight. On this day, people from across the nation and around the world will come together to donate asSquare_ much money as possible to thousands of nonprofits situated right here in the North Texas.

According to their site, “In the past 7 years, North Texas Giving Day has pumped more than $119 million into the North Texas community. In 2015, $33 million was raised through more than 118,000 gifts benefiting 2,020 nonprofits.

Last year was the Crow Collection’s first year to participate in this amazing day of giving and we raised over $18,000 from 40 donors! We are hoping with your help, we can significantly raise that number!

This year, Crow Collection of Asian Art asks you to help #GrowTheCrow. North Texas Giving Day is taking place on Thursday, September 22, 6am – midnight, giving you 18 hours to log on and make a donation for us here at the Crow.

 

Crow Collection of Asian Art educators have created powerful programs that allow classroom teachers to use the museum as an extension of the classroom.

All the money the Crow raises on North Texas Giving Day 2016 goes directly into funding youth educational programs. All donations last year were leveraged to help fund transportation for non–tuition schools, providing the opportunity for more students to visit the Crow Collection and experience learning through our works of art.
