East Texans opened up their wallets on Tuesday during East Texas Giving Day and really came through to support East Texas non-profit organizations.


The fourth annual fund raising event for East Texas non-profit organizations received more than $1.3 million dollars during the 18 hour awareness program that will benefit programs right here in our community. Those funds will go towards 183 of the 185 registered non-profits on the East Texas Giving Day website serving the 32 counties that make up East Texas. The $1,308,861 was raised through 3603 very generous donations.

When compared to last year, a total of $750,000 was raised for 158 area non-profits. More organizations are benefiting from the generosity of East Texas this year. Thank you for your support.
