North Texas Giving Day 2016

The Communities Foundation of Texas sponsored North Texas Giving Day is this Thursday, September 22nd and it is almost time to GET UP and GIVE! This is an amazing opportunity to multiply your generosity. Kids On the Land has a generous partner who is matching donations up to $5,000 made on North Texas Giving Day!!

Kids On the Land is a unique STEM environmental program taught outdoors to elementary school students resulting in measurable increases in science scores!

Partners such as The Texas Honeybee Guild,The Texas Forest Service,The NRCS and Trinity River Audubon Center, Uplift Education Williams Prep, The Dixon Water Foundation and our many incredible volunteers, donors and land owners create the community environment that make this program work.

In North Texas we have partnered with Groundwork Dallas’s Green Team, and Uplift Education William’s Prep to create a great connection between the upper schools scholars and the elementary school scholars.

“Best day of school ever!” — William’s Prep 3rd grader

Please consider helping Kids On the Land get more children learning outdoors. On North Texas Giving Day September 22nd your generosity is multiplied when you contribute through NorthTexasGivingDay.

“All children have a innate need to be in nature and nature needs a new generation to be connected to the land and take us to a more sustainable future”
