Day of Giving 2018 is November 14th

In November 2009, nine area Foundations initiated a COASTAL BEND DAY OF GIVING, a matching gift program in response to the need for food and shelter in the Coastal Bend.

Additionally, even more successful Days of Giving have been held every November since then.

The nine events, each only 24 hours in duration, have raised almost $12 million for nonprofits providing basic services to the needy.

For the 2018 Day of Giving, 25 matching funders have come together to provide a match fund of $900,000, enabling each of the 50 participating nonprofits to raise at least $36,000 if they make the match in individual online donations!

This community give-together begins at midnight on November 13 with a minimum gift of only $10.

Administered by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation, it is a community-wide event to show off the Coastal Bend’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this area great.
