CORPUS CHRISTI - For one day only, people can donate to local charities and have that money matched by a donor. The Coastal Bend Day Of Giving started in 2009 with 9 participating nonprofit organizations. The community raised $260,253 that year for the nonprofits during the giving day.
Each year, the number of organizations has increased. This year 30 local nonprofits are participating in the 24 hour challenge. The nonprofits were chosen because of their commitment to helping at risk populations in our community.
This year, the donor will match the funds raised for each organization up to $13,335, meaning each nonprofit could receive a total of $26,670. Information about each organization is on the Coastal Bend Day Of Giving website. For more information about how to donate, visit the page by clicking here. Donors can give until midnight.
