Common Questions

Will I receive a receipt for my donation?

Yes, you will automatically receive a printable on-screen acknowledgment and an email receipt for your 100% tax deductible donation. Sometimes receipts get caught up in spam filters so if your receipt does not arrive within a few minutes, check your junk mail folder.

When will the nonprofit know I made a gift? When will they get the funds?

Unless you select to be anonymous, the nonprofit(s) you supported will know about your gift right away. It will appear on their donor report within a few minutes. If you select anonymous, the nonprofits will know the amount of your gift, but not your name or contact information. It takes some time for CFT to process the nearly 3,000 grants from Giving Day, but the nonprofit(s) you support will have their check from us by the end of October.

What fees are there on my gift?

The fee on gifts made through is 4.99%. This fee is composed of the credit card fee plus the technology platform fee and partially covers costs associated with producing North Texas Giving Day.

Who powers North Texas Giving Day? How much money do they make on the day?

North Texas Giving Day is powered by Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT). We are a Dallas-based nonprofit focused on building thriving communities for all. CFT does not profit from #NTxGivingDay. As part of our efforts to Grow Giving and to Strengthen Nonprofits, we invest more than $1 million in #NTxGivingDay every year and raise an additional $1 million+ in bonus and prize funds to make sure your donation goes further.
