Buckner Donors Give $381,019 on North Texas Giving Day

Organization celebrates its largest single day of online giving in 133-year history

DALLAS – Buckner International’s ‘Get up and Give!’ emphasis on Sept. 13 brought in $381,019 for vulnerable children, families and elders. This was the largest single day of online giving in the organization’s history and the most successful North Texas Giving Day through DonorBridge yet.

Buckner received 319 gifts totaling $266,954 – a 25 percent increase over the dollars given for the same initiative in 2011. In addition, Buckner received $113,964 in matching funds from Communities Foundation of Texas and an anonymous Buckner donor.

“Our work at Buckner is a partnership,” said David Slover, president of Buckner Foundation. “It’s a partnership between the organization, those we serve and the supporters who believe in our mission. It is because of our generous friends and donors that we are able to provide the love and hope of Jesus Christ to those we serve every day. We are so thankful to everyone who gave and helped make this success possible.”

This year’s North Texas Giving Day raised $14.4 million for 900+ non-profit organizations based in the North Texas area, making it the largest single giving day in the United States.
