Fall in North Texas means it’s time for football and philanthropy! Kicking off the season with North Texas Giving Day — Communities Foundation of Texas’ annual 18-hour online giving extravaganza for North Texas on Sept. 14. The day is powered by creative nonprofits, social media activism, area-wide collaboration, and of course North Texans coming together! North Texas Giving Day’s goal is to help build awareness and support for nonprofits in North Texas, while making the act of giving easy for donors.
When you give via NorthTexasGivingDay.org, your donation goes further with bonus funds and prizes. All donations scheduled between September 7th and 13th or made between 6 am and midnight on September 14, 2017 qualify. Your donation triggers opportunities for your nonprofit to win prizes rewarded at random or for the highest number of donors! This year every dollar given up to $10,000 will be multiplied with bonus funds when donors give online through NorthTexasGivingDay.org. Plus, some nonprofits have 1:1 matching funds which means your donation is doubled!
TrizCom is passionate about giving back to our community throughout the year and proudly supports many local nonprofits including Community Council of Dallas, Operation Kindness, Heroes for Children and Taylor’s Gift. TrizCom founder and CEO Jo Trizila is a firm believer in the Biblical parable “to whom much has been given, much will be required,” and with that philosophy she empowers the team at TrizCom to provide our time, treasures and talents to give back.

Here’s a highlight of a few of the organizations we will be supporting this North Texas Giving Day!
North Texas’ original and largest no-kill animal shelter. In 2016, Operation Kindness celebrated their 40th anniversary and their achievement of saving more than 90,000 animals since their inception. Annually the shelter assists more than 5,000 dogs and cats, caring for an average of 300 animals daily with another 100-150 animals in foster homes.
Community Council of Dallas
Since its founding in 1940, the Community Council has identified services that are needed in the community, assessed how best services could be delivered to meet social issues, and mobilized and implemented action plans working in concert with its member agencies and public sector resources. Pervasive issues over time have included juvenile delinquency and welfare; seniors; public health; daycare; and legislative advocacy. The Community Council met these challenges through fact-based research, deploying volunteers, incubating new services and agencies, expanding government programs where appropriate, convening collaborative work and delivering selected direct services.
Taylor’s Gift Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the life-saving effort of increasing organ donor registrations and to financially assisting families touched by organ donation.
Heroes for Children
Heroes for Children is a unique nonprofit that provide financial and social assistance to families with children battling cancer.
