North Texas Giving Day

The Movin’ Mavs wheelchair basketball team and the Adaptive Sports Program participated in an event sponsored by the Communities Foundation of Texas. The event was called the North Texas Giving Day, and took place on September 13th, 2012. The organization received 32 donations, accumulating more than $2,600.

The Communities Foundation of Texas has been providing services and grants for nonprofit organizations across North Texas and the world since 1963, and since then it has raised more than $1.3 billion in funds.

Carol Golgia, director of Marketing and Communications for the organization, said the objective of North Texas Giving Day is to inform individuals on how important nonprofit organizations are to the communities, and the difference they can make across North Texas. She says, “It provides a low-cost way for nonprofits to fundraise and allow for new donors to give to a particular organization of their choice.”

North Texas Giving Day was first launched in 2009, and it gives donors the opportunity to visit the event’s web site and donate any given amount. Any donations over $25 were matched by a percentage of challenge funds and prizes.

The coach of Movin’ Mars basketball team, Doug Garner, says the team received an abundance of support at the event. Garner also says, “It’s a great way for alumni to get involved, and each donation made to our program the foundation matches it. So that allows for even more money and enhances awareness of what we’re trying to accomplish with the limited time we have to fundraise.”

Penny Acrey, director of Students with Disabilities, says the occasion was a great one for Movin’ Mavs. She says, “In tough economic times and how jobs are hard to find these days, it’s good to know that people are still willing to give towards a good cause.”
