Support Father of the Year this year for North Communities Foundation of Texas' 11th Annual North Texas Giving Day on Thursday, September 19, 2019!

Father of the Year is participating in the 18-hour giving extravaganza to benefit our local nonprofits and make a difference here at home.

In ten years, this online event has transformed from an idea to help raise awareness of nonprofits, to a movement that has ignited a broad culture of community-wide giving. During North Texas Giving Day, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community.



The Dallas Father of the Year Awards Luncheon honors fathers who exemplify fatherhood values in their own homes and who are leaders in the community.
