FWD>DFW’s holiday contest offers the opportunity to give back
by FWD>DFW | December 5, 2018
‘Tis the season for gifting and giving — and giving back.
Perhaps there is no better example of that than the annual Giving Tuesday initiative, which was held this year on November 27.
As part of this global day of giving, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas’ #GiveBigDFW collected $30.98 million in gifts to 168 nonprofits — an incredible 36 percent increase from last year’s campaign.
It’s just one of the reasons we are so honored to have United Way of Metropolitan Dallas as the founding community impact partner of FWD>DFW.
“Giving Tuesday has created a surge of enthusiasm since its inception in 2012,” said United Way of Metropolitan Dallas president and CEO Jennifer Sampson. “And although it is raising significant funds for nonprofits, it’s much more than a day of fundraising. It’s an online and offline movement where ideas and resources are built and shared, and cultures of generosity are flourishing.”
#GiveBigDFW also coordinated 16,759 hours of volunteer service to almost 500 nonprofit organizations, proving there are many ways to give back in the community.
And, FWD>DFW has another way you can join in and keep the giving going this holiday season — and it couldn’t be easier.
With the new #MoveFWDGiveBack contest, you’ll have a chance to give big to your favorite charity this holiday. If you win, FWD>DFW will donate $1,000 to the charity on your behalf.

We all know the adage: Giving is better than receiving. But, with this little giveaway, you can basically have the best of both worlds.
It’s FWD>DFW’s gift to you.
