If you’re worried about Dirk Nowitzki becoming bored after retirement, don’t. Dirk and Jessica Nowitzki will serve as honorary chairs for Communities Foundation of Texas’ 11th annual North Texas Giving Day. The day is officially underway with nonprofit kickoff events taking place through June 4. After a banner 10th anniversary year, event organizers at Communities Foundation of Texas made the Nowitzki announcement.

“Jessica and I are thrilled to be this year’s honorary chairs of North Texas Giving Day. The North Texas community has given so much to me and my family over the last 21 years, and we can’t think of a better way to get involved in the community that has supported me on and off the court,” says NBA Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki. “Last year’s giving day generated a landslide $48 million. I challenge everyone to join us in beating another major record for Dallas by donating to your favorite non-profit on North Texas Giving Day.”

“Giving back is a huge part of our family, and we’re thrilled to join forces with Communities Foundation of Texas to spread the North Texas Giving Day message and rally everyone who lives here to give back to our community on September 19,” said Jessica Nowitzki.

Registration for nonprofits to benefit from North Texas Giving Day opened May 23. Nonprofits must register every year, and can do so by visiting www.northtexasgivingday.org/resources. Registration closes August 19, 2019.

Designed to energize and inspire, kickoff events include “giving day DIY” tips delivered by previous years’ top fundraisers and event organizers. Nonprofits can attend any of the events, but must register here in advance to attend. Remaining kickoffs include:

• Denton County, May 30, 10 a.m. to 12 noon (Liberty Christian School, 1301 US-377, Argyle, TX 76226)

• Tarrant County, June 3, 9 to 10:30 a.m. (Texas Live!, 1650 E Randol Mill Rd., Arlington, TX 76011)

• Collin County, June 4, 10 a.m. to noon (Collin College McKinney Campus Conference Center, 2200 W. University Dr., McKinney, TX 75070)

“With ten years under our belts, and the adored Nowitzki family at our side this North Texas Giving Day, we are brimming with excitement about the impact we can make for the thousands of nonprofits supporting tens of thousands of North Texans,” said Susan Swan Smith, Chief Giving Day Officer at Communities Foundation of Texas. “Communities Foundation of Texas and our donors are proud to bring this tidal wave of good to the community for the 11th year and look forward to getting this party started.”

Support for CFT’s North Texas Giving Day has been committed so far by Amon G. Carter Foundation, Arlington Tomorrow Foundation, The Dallas Foundation, Energy Transfer, Hunt Cares, Lyda Hill Foundation, Nonprofit Storytelling Conference, On-Air Media, PulseM, Sid W. Richardson Foundation, Texas Live!, and the Trinbrook Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas. Media sponsors so far include: BubbleLife, Cumulus Radio, The Dallas Morning News, DFW Child, MySweetCharity, Salem Media Group, Telemundo 39, and WFAA-Channel 8.

Since 2009, North Texas Giving Day has pumped $240 million into the community. In 2018, $48 million was raised through more than 137,000 gifts benefiting 2,700 nonprofits. Visit www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org. #NTxGivingDay @NorthTexasGivingDay
