East Texas Giving Day is coming on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. Now that Texas is wide open and the pandemic is hopefully winding down, now is the time to give all we can to help our East Texas Charities recover as well. All of our area charities need your support more than ever, it's time to dig deep and do whatever you can to help every organization that you can.

Participation is simple, just click on the links below and donate $10 or more from just about any device you can imagine, phones, tablets, computers, whatever you have that can access the internet.

“Giving Day is happening at a critical time for the nonprofit community,” said Holly McFarlin, Public Relations Director of East Texas Communities Foundation. “Nonprofits are responding to an increased demand for services meanwhile, donations have slowed due to the postponement of public fundraising events due to the pandemic. Giving Day could be a bridge to help fill some of those funding gaps many nonprofits are experiencing.”
