North Texas Giving Day 2018

Sunday, September 16 2018

Posted By: Michelle Hennessy 

North Texas Giving Day is fast approaching!

We are excited to tell you that we have once again secured matching funds for North Texas Giving Day!

All donations will be matched dollar for dollar up to $6,000!


EACH donation (up to 150 donations) made between 6AM and 10AM on September 20th will earn $10 giving us the opportunity to receive $1,500 in BONUS FUNDS.

We will also be eligible for an additional $5,000 bonus from the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation if we have the largest number of donors in the 6AM to 10AM time slot, so let's not stop at 150 donors that morning. The more donations we have, the better our chances are of winning extra money!!!

Please plan to give on September 20th and remember each member of your family can make separate donations to increase our total number of donors!

We look forward to your support,
Ulster Project Arlington
