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.

“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.
