Due to extraordinary community support, all matching funds designated for the participating animal-related organizations were exhausted within the first day of the campaign. We encourage you to continue to use our convenient online giving platform to support these remarkable organizations and their ongoing efforts in the community.

From May 12 until May 26, Gigi Gartner and Communities Foundation of Texas are joining forces to match your donation, dollar for dollar, to nonprofits supporting animals for North Texans, up to a total of $150,000*! This means your contributions will be matched, doubling the support we can provide together.

Through the generosity of donors like you, last year North Texas Giving Day raised over $3.9 million for nonprofits dedicated to supporting animals in our community. 

Your generosity makes a difference. Search for an organization below, make your donation, and amplify your impact.


Animal welfare holds a significant place in my heart. I hope that this effort raises awareness and inspires others to support organizations that are helping animals and pets to transform lives and make a larger impact across our community.” 

— Gigi Gartner, Communities Foundation of Texas Fund Holder & Community Partner
