North Texas Giving Day Q&A

North Texas Giving Day is around the corner and we ask you as a member of the Esperanza community to partner with us on September 20th to raise $5,000 for aspiring entrepreneurs in the Dominican Republic.

North Texas Giving Day is around the corner and we ask you as a member of the Esperanza community to partner with us on September 20th to raise $5,000.

To simplify your giving process, we have outlined a Q&A of #NTXGivingDay common questions and answers. Our eagerness this year to galvanize many participants for Thursday’s online giving event is because we believe strongly in our associates who with access to capital have infinite potential for growth and development.

Q&A:

What is North Texas Giving Day? North Texas Giving Day is the largest community-wide giving event in the country. In 2017, the 18-hour event raised over $39 million, through more than 137,000 gifts benefiting 2,723 local nonprofits, bringing the nine year total to $195 million for our community.

When is North Texas Giving Day?  September 20, 2018. We ask donors give what they are able to Esperanza International. Every dollar will go towards our efforts to continue the work of alleviating poverty in the Dominican Republic.

How do I give? There are three primary ways your gift will be counted towards North Texas Giving Day:

1.Make an early pledge. Donors can schedule their gifts before September 20th. Go to www.northtexasgivingday.org to schedule your gift between September 10th and September 20th.

2.Give on September 20th, 2018. Mark your calendar today, and be part of a community ignited by giving. You may give at https://www.esperanza.org/donate/

3.Commit to a recurring donation. We encourage giving not just one day of the year, but every month as it supports long-lasting economic solutions. https://www.esperanza.org/donate/ 

As always, we thank you in advance for your contributions. Together, let’s meet our goal of $5,000 raised to bring sustainable, Christ-centered services to the material poor in the Dominican Republic.

Taylor’s Esperanza Trip

First of all, I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to my lovely lady boss, the owner of The It Crowd, Lindsey Harrison, for having such a big heart and sending her employees on a trip like this every year.
