North Texas Giving Day 2020:
Record-Breaking Success!
Rainbow Days is pleased to announce that North Texas Giving Day 2020 was a massive success!

On Sept. 17, thanks to the kindness of more than 180 individual donors, Rainbow Days exceeded our goal by raising $44,764 in donations and secured a $40,000 matching gift from a very generous anonymous donor. All of this equated to a grand total of $84,764 raised for Rainbow Days on North Texas Giving Day 2020!

On behalf of all of us at Rainbow Days, we are incredibly grateful for each and every person whose support is fueling our programs during this challenging time. This record-breaking North Texas Giving Day is a tremendous blessing to Rainbow Days as we work to continue meeting the social, emotional and tangible needs of at-risk and homeless children and youth across Dallas.

If you were not able to participate in North Texas Giving Day, you can still support Rainbow Days by making a gift anytime to continue making an impact in children's lives.
Back-to-School Impact
This back-to-school season, Rainbow Days was thrilled to be able to meet the tangible needs of 1,200 at-risk and homeless children and youth in our Community Connection and Family Connection programs. By distributing new backpacks, school supplies, uniforms and after-school clothing, we equipped kids with the supplies and confidence they need for success in school this year.

Rainbow Days is grateful for the countless organizations and individuals whose support was critical to the success of this project. Specials thanks go to the MoneyGram Foundation for its generous financial sponsorship of Back-to-School 2020 and to KIDBOX / Delivering Good for donating more than 2,700 pieces of clothing for the kids we serve.
