Stretch Your Gift with NTX Giving Day!

North Texas Giving Day is approaching quickly, and we are thrilled that this year our Historical Preservation Trust will be a recipient! But what does this mean exactly? North Texas Giving Day is an online giving event that provides nonprofits the opportunity to gain exposure to — and start relationships with — new donors, and for people in North Texas to come together to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits. This event allows North Texans to maximize the impact of their gift dollars by matching gift funds up to a certain percentage. (The more the event raises, the higher the percentage!) This handy video helps explain how the whole thing works:

You can schedule your gift TODAY by going to https://www.northtexasgivingday.org/wcfwhpt and clicking the big green "Donate Now" button. Your gift of at least $25 will help The Woman's Club of Fort Worth Historical Preservation Trust raise money to pay for important upcoming repairs such as replacing the leaking roof over the Tea Room and replacing a commercial HVAC unit in Shelton Hall (a combined expense of nearly $80,000). Our fundraising goal for the next two years is $250,000 to replenish our dwindling HPT funds so we are prepared for future major repairs and renovations.

Would you like to join your peers as an ambassador for The Woman's Club of Fort Worth to promote our organization during this online giving event? We have some easy ways for you to lend a hand!
