HELP US DOUBLE OUR IMPACT
With your help, we can raise $200,000 on #NTXGivingDay.
North Texas Giving Day is September 23! This year, we have an incredible opportunity to double our impact. Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, every gift to CCFW will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000!
This means, we can raise $200,000 in the next few weeks. Help us get there by joining one of our Pathways to Giving Day:
– Donate! You can give early, starting September 1.
– Create a FUNdraising page! Share with your networks and help us reach new audiences. Get started here.
– Engage with us on social media! Share our posts, join our Facebook event page, and use our custom Facebook profile frame.
At Catholic Charities Fort Worth, we see multiple pathways to success. We have learned that the best way to create lasting impact is to tune into each client’s experience with poverty. And to build flexibility and creativity into our programs. Every person we serve is at a different point in their journey, so we meet them where they are and let them define the path forward.
Every gift to Catholic Charities is an investment in someone’s pathway, in a life free from poverty. It may be a single mother’s pathway to a college degree. It may be a refugee’s journey to stability in their new home. It may be your neighbor’s search for reliable transportation.
Each pathway is different, but each equally important in not only lifting families out of poverty but also preventing poverty in many forms. Building resilience, breaking cycles, and transforming families for years to come.
