Last year, alumni, parents and friends of UD helped to raise more than $135,000 for our students in just 18 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. 17, from 6 a.m. to midnight.

"Last North Texas Giving Day, we raised 10 percent of our yearly Cor Fund goal in 18 hours," said President Thomas W. Keefe. "I invite all friends of UD to join us again this year on Sept. 17."

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 17;

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."
