Gifts to UD Go Further During North Texas Giving Day, Sept. 18

 

Last year, alumni, parents and friends of UD helped to raise more than $125,000 for the university in 17 hours. 

Once again, every donation of $25 or more made through NorthTexasGivingDay.org will receive bonus funds from the Communities Foundation of Texas on Thursday, Sept. 18, from 6 a.m. to midnight.

"Last North Texas Giving Day, we raised 10 percent of our yearly Cor Fund goal in 17 hours. We were able to maintain that momentum throughout the year, leading to one of the best fundraising years yet for the university," said President Thomas W. Keefe. "I invite all friends of UD to join us again this year on Sept. 18."

Alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends of the university can show their support for UD students during North Texas Giving Day by:

1. visiting NorthTexasGivingDay.org any time from 6 a.m.-midnight on September 18;
2. searching for the "University of Dallas";
3. clicking "Donate Now" (log-in and password are not required);
4. giving $25 or more safely and securely;
5. and, waiting for your email confirmation/tax receipt from the "Communities Foundation of Texas."

In 2013, the University received a total of $129,000 from 334 donors--a 54 percent increase in total gifts and a 158 percent increase in dollars donated over 2012.
