How can I give?

  • To donate, simply log on to www.coastalbenddayofgiving.org on November 14, 2017, click “nonprofits”, search for your favorite nonprofit(s), and click “Give”. You can make a donation using your credit or debit card or an electronic check. You may also preschedule your donation November 5 – November 13 and your transaction will be processed on November 14. ($10 minimum contribution)
    • EVERY gift makes a difference! Over 34,700 individual gifts were made in the prior eight Days of Giving. Did you know the Food Bank of Corpus Christi can distribute 85 pounds of food in rural South Texas for $10? For $25, Salvation Army can help provide clothing and shoes for two veterans. And for $100, Timon’s Ministries can send ten children back to school with new backpacks.

How can my nonprofit participate in the Day of Giving?

  • Nonprofit participants are selected by the matching funders (in 2016 there were 23). The foundations have focused on core needs organizations – those that address hunger and homelessness, medical needs, etc. – and that focus will most likely continue as long as the underserved population remains high
  • There are additional considerations –whether the organizations fit the foundations’ funding criteria, the nonprofit’s impact in the community, and the number of agencies included versus the amount of the match, among others

Interest in the Day of Giving among nonprofits is great and unfortunately, not every organization can be included.
