Coastal Bend Day of Giving sets new record for donations

The annual 24-hour online campaign narrowly beat out 2021's previous record by $27,000.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Fight hunger, support children, improve health, reduce homelessness right here in the Coastal Bend.

In November 2009, nine area Foundations initiated a Coastal Bend Day of Giving, a matching gift program in response to the need for food and shelter in the Coastal Bend. Additionally, even more, successful Days of Giving have been held every November since then. The thirteen events, each only 24 hours in duration, have raised over $24.3 million for nonprofits providing basic services to the needy. 

For the 2022 Day of Giving, 26 matching funders have come together to provide a matching fund of $1.3 million, enabling each of the participating nonprofits to raise at least $48,000 if they make the match in individual online donations!

This community give-together is on November 8 with a minimum gift of only $10. Administered by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation, it is a community-wide event to show off the Coastal Bend's spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this area great.
