Dear Brenda,

Our greatest asset in an unprecedented time is each other. Across the globe, communities are going the distance to come together to provide relief efforts for the COVID-19 pandemic. With many nonprofits seeing an increase in demand for critical services coupled with the cancellation of in-person fundraising opportunities, all charitable organizations, including North Texas nonprofit organizations are reeling from the devastating impact of this global health emergency.
In concert with the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign, the international call for unity and giving, Communities Foundation of Texas' North Texas Giving Day, the Dallas Cowboys and the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas have teamed up to do what we do best – come together to support the organizations and individuals who need help the most.

On Tuesday, May 5, this collaborative will host an emergency response day of giving, North Texas Giving Tuesday Now, to encourage donor support for nonprofit organizations reeling from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Collectively, we are committed to standing with our community as we navigate this time of uncertainty both locally and around the world.

“This is about inspiring local unity, action, and generosity. Our community, country and world need our support now more than ever before. As #GivingTuesdayNow tackles the need on the global and national scale, Communities Foundation of Texas is thrilled to be joined by United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and the Dallas Cowboys in unparalleled efforts to address local needs right here at home.”

- Dave Scullin, President and CEO of Communities Foundation of Texas
