Kids Matter would like to give a huge “THANK YOU” to all who participated in North Texas Giving Day on Thursday, September 17th to help us exceed our goal of $10,000. Kids Matter raised $11,865 with 33 unique gifts from donors in just 18 hours! Thanks to an additional $5,000 matching gift, the total raised amounted to $16,865, which does not include bonus funds from Communities Foundation of Texas.
Communities Foundation of Texas reported that $33.1 million was donated online at northtexasgivingday.org to over 2,100 nonprofits in North Texas on September 17th this year, beating a record $26 million from 2014.
Kids Matter could not have been as successful this North Texas Giving Day without the generous support of our friends. The funds raised will go to our mission of helping children in need by providing new clothes, shoes, backpacks, and more. Kids Matter will be able to impact more children in North Texas and looks forward to another successful Giving Day in 2016.
