Students and teachers raised more than $500,000 during annual giving day event
DALLAS – October 5, 2017 – Trinity Christian Academy (TCA) in Addison, raised more than $500,000 during the ninth annual North Texas Giving Day, the largest community-wide giving event in the country, which helps build awareness and support for nonprofits in the North Texas region.
Every donor that participated helped TCA receive “bonus funds” for the organization, and the first $47,000 TCA received was matched dollar-for-dollar by alumni, donors and friends. TCA received 989 gifts, more than any other school on North Texas Giving Day. The school was awarded $5,000 for this achievement. Of the more than 2,700 organizations that participated in North Texas Giving Day, TCA was ranked eighth in number of gifts and ninth in total dollars received.
"We're always impressed by the support we receive from our community each year," said TCA Headmaster Dave Delph. “Donation amounts have increased each year since we began participating in North Texas Giving Day in 2013. Since then, we have raised a total of $1,980,269. On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, I want to say thank you to everyone who donated this year.”
North Texas Giving Day once again exceeded its prior record and raised $39 million in 18 hours due to the generosity of TCA's donors as well as other contributors who donated funds to various nonprofits. Donations poured in from people in all 50 states and 36 countries, and have positively impacted nonprofits in North Texas, including $370,000 in contributions granted to hurricane relief funds.
