North Texas Giving Day
When is North Texas Giving Day?

North Texas Giving Day (NTGD) is set for September 20, 2018.

Who created North Texas Giving Day?

NTGD was created by Communities Foundation of Texas, a leading 63 year old community foundation headquartered in Dallas, TX. It is one of the first, and largest, community-wide giving days in the country. It is an online event. Most activity takes place via their website, NorthTexasGivingDay.org

Please support The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Fort Worth Council and its many works by donating on September 14 by using the link above.

A new project of ours is the Mini-Loan Conversion Program. As you know, payday loans often trap the working poor into a never-ending cycle of debt. When one of our neighbors in need has a pay day loan at interest rates as high as 400% APR we are able to convert the loan into payments that are more manageable to their income. Our clients receive financial counseling and their hope is restored. Due to past financial support we were able to fund the loans needed. We are working hard to fulfill our mission to end the debt trap and offer hope and help to our neighbors in need. The North Texas Day of Giving on September 14 presents an excellent opportunity to expand our services. We have local business that will match your donations dollar for dollar when donating. No amount is too small.
