2015 Coastal Bend Day of Giving Check Presentation

CBCF 9 News 9 2015 Coastal Bend Day of Giving Check Presentation

Yesterday was an exciting day as we hosted the 2015 Coastal Bend Day of Giving check presentation. The matching funders presented individual donations from the Coastal Bend Day of Giving and matching funds to the 40 local participating nonprofits who serve those populations most at risk in the Coastal Bend region. The seventh Coastal Bend Day of Giving was a huge success, raising $1.93 million. Over 7,300 individual gifts totaled $1.276 million in the 24-hour fundraising event. Thank you to KIII TV and Caller-Times for the media coverage, the matching funders and online donors.


The Mission of the Foundation is to improve the quality of life in the Coastal Bend by building community endowment and addressing social, educational, environmental, and cultural needs through the awarding of grants and scholarships.

The Foundation’s Vision is to provide the Coastal Bend with:

  • Efficient gift options to meet donors’ charitable wishes
