North Texas Giving Day 2016

Making a difference has never been easier
September 20th, 2016

North Texas Giving Day is Sept. 22, 2016Each day Texas A&M College of Dentistry gives — whether it’s to our students in the form of knowledge and hand skills or to our patients in the form of compassionate comprehensive care. Since its inception in 1993, Baylor Oral Health Foundation has increased the College of Dentistry’s capacity to positively impact those it serves by generously giving the college more than $60 million.

North Texas Giving Day, an 18-hour online fundraising event benefiting more than 2,000 North Texas nonprofits, has given a welcome boost to the foundation’s efforts. Since BOHF began its participation in this annual giving day in fall 2010, the event has generated $104,832 to ultimately benefit the dental school.

Here’s how to help the foundation do more.

On Thursday, Sept. 22, access the North Texas Giving Day website anytime from 6 a.m. to midnight from your cellphone, home or desk computer, or in the college’s atrium from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Simply select Baylor Oral Health Foundation and the amount of your contribution. A percentage of all donations $25 or higher will be matched.

You can even give to the BOHF fund of your choice. (Don’t worry, plenty of options are available!)
