TOBET closes out its 2nd successful North Texas Giving Day!
North Texas Giving Day is the largest online giving event in the US. Nonprofits based in North Texas post a public profile on NTGD’s website, hosted by the Communities Foundation of Texas; and during the annual 18-hour giving extravaganza, donations are tracked and funneled to these nonprofits from all over the world!
And that’s not all: the CFT also awards “bonus funds”, with the amount given based on how much the nonprofits raise on Giving Day. This means that the more money raised by nonprofits ON North Texas Giving Day, the more donations to the nonprofits are multiplied!
TOBET and Giving Day
Yesterday, TOBET raised over $13,000! We did not meet our goal of $50,000 like we had hoped…but we are definitely NOT disappointed! Our generous donors gave more than twice this year what they gave last year (before matching gifts), and more than TWICE as many gifts were made. That means twice as many generous souls who seek to change lives with the Theology of the Body found and gave to TOBET!
And just by being part of Giving Day, TOBET is eligible to have that amount multiplied even more through bonus funds. We will be able to announce the total amount raised once the Communities Foundation of Texas finalizes their event closing processes.
The amount raised will further development of TOBET’s The Body Matters children’s curriculum – writing, illustration, design and production costs, as well as marketing initiatives to spread the word.
Thanks to North Texas Giving Day, an age-appropriate, holistic children’s curriculum based on St. John Paul’s life-giving teaching will soon be available! And YOU helped make it happen!
