North Texas Giving Day Kick Off Celebration

This past week, Heritage Oak Cliff was met with rousing fanfare as members of North Texas Giving Day program and Amazon converged on Mike Matthews home to celebrate our participation in the Giving Day 2021. We received a gift basket with all kinds of neat things in it, and you will see that given away during one of our events soon.

In case you have not heard. Heritage Oak Cliff signed up with North Texas Giving Day and you can make donations on their site that go directly to HOC and the money we will use for our grant cycle next year.

Heritage Oak Cliff is looking for matching sponsors. Matching sponsors are featured on the NTX Giving Day Heritage Oak Cliff site. Please contact Mike Matthews at if you want to be a matching sponsor, and he talk through the perks and how to sign up.

North Texas Giving Day is September 23, 2021, and Heritage Oak Cliff is planning a party (1) to receive donations, (2) to thank donors, (3) to feature the matching sponsor(s), and (4) to promote Passport Oak Cliff. Watch future newsletters for more details on the NTX Giving Day event.

More on North Texas Giving Day...

Communities Foundation of Texas’ NTX Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform.

The event helps build awareness and support for nonprofits like nothing else. In 2020, $58.8 million was raised through 106,000 donors benefiting over 3,200 local nonprofits, bringing the eleven-year total to over $374 million for our community. NTX Giving Day is the largest community-wide giving event in the nation.

Since its inception in 2009, this online event has transformed from an idea to help local people give wisely, to a movement that has ignited a broad culture of community-wide giving. During NTX Giving Day, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community.
