Forefront Living participates in largest community-wide giving day

Forefront Living is among over 3,200 nonprofits participating in the 12th annual North Texas Giving Day on Sept. 17. The event raised $50 million in donations in 2019 and is expecting a larger turnout than ever before.

North Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour online event designed for members of the community to support local nonprofits. The event builds awareness and garnishes support like no other community giving day.

“I give through North Texas Giving Day because it is a great way to benefit more than one organization,” said Liza Lee, former Forefront Living board member. “I enjoy knowing I can help those cared for by Forefront Living, while also promoting another nonprofit in Texas.”

Forefront Living had a goal of raising $50,000 with a match donor to benefit the T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Center.

“We have been fortunate in the past to have generous challenge gifts for North Texas Giving Day,” said Anita Ray, consultant at Forefront Living Foundation. “Based on prior years’ donations we felt a $50,000 challenge gift was a stretch but definitely achievable. Our North Texas Giving Day 2020 supporters were incredible. As the day went on and we were very close to reaching $50,000 in donations we decided to increase the match by another $5,000 and donors rose to the challenge and exceeded our goal!”

With the match donation, Forefront Living raised $112,677 for the T. Boone Pickens Hospice Center. These gifts will help patients and their families experience compassionate, high quality end-of-life care in a pristine environment – now and in the future.   

“I am deeply grateful to everyone that donated to Forefront Living during North Texas Giving Day,” said CEO Tim Mallad. “The work we do is important and wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the community.”
