Coastal Bend Day of Giving Checks Presentation

CBCF 9 News 9 Coastal Bend Day of Giving Checks Presentation

It was a great day on Monday, December 15, 2014, as the donor funders presented matching checks to the 35 local nonprofits who participated in this year’s Coastal Bend Day of Giving. The sixth Coastal Bend Day of Giving was a phenomenal success, raising $1.568 million. Over 6,400 individual gifts totaled $1 million in the 24-hour fundraising event. This event couldn’t be a success without the support of the matching funders, our media sponsors KIII and Caller-Times, other media outlets, the individual donors and the Coastal Bend community!


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
  • Effective grants to charitable organizations and scholarships to students
  • Ethical leadership to promote and enhance area philanthropy
