Dallas Morning News Receives More than $1.2 Million Donation

To help the Dallas-Fort Worth community and some 23 nonprofit organizations, the Dallas Morning News Charities raised a $1.2 million donation according to a Dallas Morning News article from February 11. They say, 

“The Dallas Morning News Charities wrapped up its annual fundraising campaign with more than $1.2 million in donations that will benefit 23 nonprofits throughout Dallas-Fort Worth.

Nicole Bursey, executive director at Frisco Family Services, said that donations have been critical for the nonprofit.

Teresa Jackson is the CEO of Sharing Life Community Outreach, which provides food, clothing, financial assistance and other programs for low-income residents in southeastern Dallas County.

Funds from The Dallas Morning News Charities go toward the agency’s overnight warming centers, various types of food and financial assistance, and backpacks filled with food for thousands of children during the school year, Jackson said.

Funds from The Dallas Morning News Charities not only help pay for food, shelter, medical, psychiatric and psychological treatment and substance abuse counseling, but they will also go towards future projects.”

Back in November, the Dallas Morning News have already received half a million dollars after partnering with several organizations in the hopes of battling homelessness and hunger especially during these times according to a Dallas Morning News article from November 17 which reports, 

“The fundraising goal is $1.5 million. Because The Dallas Morning News pays the campaign’s administrative costs, 100% of donations go to nonprofits.

Grant Moise, publisher and president of The Dallas Morning News, said that the campaign’s aim is to support and work alongside agencies in North Texas fighting to solve homelessness and hunger.

The campaign is kicking off with nearly $440,000 in hand, thanks to early gifts that included $200,000 from the J.L. Williams Foundation and over $45,000 from this year’s North Texas Giving Day fundraising event, among other donations.”

The fundraising which will be given back to the community through different organizations started in November 17 and it ended in January 31.
