Selwyn & North Texas Giving Day

We are always grateful to the dedicated families and other donors that contribute to Selwyn School with their financial support. As you know, independent schools are nonprofit institutions that rely on tuition and donations, rather than government funding, to operate. Participating in North Texas Giving Day is another great way to help ensure educational excellence at our school, and Selwyn is excited to be included on the roster for this year’s annual day of giving!

September 22, 2016

NTGD-2016On Thursday, September 22, we will have the opportunity for one day only ﹘ from 6 a.m. to midnight ﹘ to collect donations through the official North Texas Giving Day website that can result in prizes or bonus funding for our school. All you need is a debit or credit card to make a donation that will directly benefit the students and teachers at Selwyn. Be sure to mark your calendar and let your friends and families know that their donations can go further than ever on North Texas Giving Day to provide educational opportunities for our students.

If you are interested in contributing on North Texas Giving Day as Challenge Fund donor, please contact giving@selwynschool.com. As a Challenge Fund donor, your generous contribution can help us encourage others to give by guaranteeing the amplification of their gifts to the school!

Remember, there are lots of ways to contribute to the Selwyn throughout the year outside of North Texas Giving Day donations! Consider joining our Parent Teacher Association, or check out our support page and discover even more ways to help us make Selwyn the best place for our children’s educational journey.

Challenge Fund Opportunities

In addition to the pool of bonus funds that we will be eligible for through the Communities Foundation of Texas, we are thrilled to announce a special opportunity to double your donation. The members of our Board of Trustees have pledged their unanimous support in the form of a $7,500 challenge grant which will be used to match donations on North Texas Giving Day! Here’s how you can participate and make your contribution go further:

Challenge #1
Our first $5,000 in donations received on North Texas Giving Day will be eligible for a 1:1 match ($5,000 total);

Challenge #2
If we achieve 100% participation by currently enrolled families, we will receive an additional $1,500;

Challenge #3
If 20 alumni make donations of at least $100 each ($2,000 total), Selwyn will receive an additional $1,000 in challenge funds!
