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 14th 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 14th to raise $5,000 for aspiring entrepreneurs in the Dominican Republic. To simplify your giving process this season, 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.

What is North Texas Giving Day?
North Texas Giving Day is the largest community-wide giving event in the country. In 2016, the 18-hour event raised over $37 million for 2,500+ nonprofits. The website profiles more than 2,500 nonprofits, and since its inception has infused $156 million into nonprofits serving the 16-county North Texas community.

When is North Texas Giving Day?
September 14, 2017. This Thursday we ask donors give as much as they are able to Esperanza International. Every dollar will go towards efforts to alleviate poverty in the Dominican Republic.

This is the first year that North Texas Giving Day is opening scheduled giving. By going to you can complete a donation form and pledge a gift to be processed on September 14th. All scheduled donations are accepted September 7th – September 13th at midnight.

How will Esperanza use the donations given on North Texas Giving Day?
Contributions will go toward supporting the small-but-mighty U.S. Team based in Dallas, TX! By supporting local expenses like two staff salaries and office space, you are investing in the long term sustainability and transformational work of Esperanza International.

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

1. Make an early pledge. This year donors can schedule their gifts before September 14th! Go to to schedule your gift between September 7th and September 13th at midnight.
2. Give on September 14, 2017. Mark your calendar today, and be part of a community ignited by giving.You may give at
3. Commit a recurring donation. We encourage giving not just one day of the year, but every month as it supports long-lasting economic solutions.

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.
