The Friends of the Mansfield Public Library are excited to participate in our first Giving Day on Sept. 22, 2016.
The Bottom Line
If you donate at least $25 to the Friends through the Giving Day website on September 22, 2016, from 6 a.m. to midnight, we will receive your donation, plus bonus funds. Here’s a link to our specific page there.
About Giving Day
If you haven’t heard of Giving Day, it’s an online giving event with the goal to raise as much money as possible for North Texas nonprofits on one day. In seven years, North Texas Giving Day has pumped $119 million into the North Texas community. In 2015, $33 million was raised through more than 118,000 gifts benefiting 2,020 nonprofits.
How Bonus Funds Work
Besides raising awareness for nonprofits, the group organization behind Giving Day, Communities Foundation of Texas, will also award nonprofits with bonus funds.
Donations between $25 to $50,000 will be multiplied by the $2.5 million in bonus funds and prizes. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on North Texas Giving Day receives a portion of the bonus funds, which increases the value of every dollar donated.
For example, if a nonprofit raises $5,000 on North Texas Giving Day, and the bonus percentage is 7.5%, then that nonprofit will earn $5,375. (before processing fees). Watch the video for a visual explanation.
