Dallas Morning News Charities Campaign Surpasses Million-Dollar Mark

The Dallas News reports that the Dallas Morning News Charities has reached an important milestone, surpassing the million-dollar mark in the campaign’s final month.

As of January 4, 1,060 donors had contributed more than $1.05 million to the drive, which benefits 20 nonprofits that serve the homeless, hungry and unemployed in North Texas.

The campaign runs until Jan. 31 and has a goal of $1.5 million. Last year’s drive raised over $1.25 million through roughly 1,550 donors.

Since 1986, The Dallas Morning News Charities has raised nearly $32.2 million. The News covers all administrative costs so that 100 percent of donations benefit the 20 charities.

This year’s campaign started with over $363,000 already in the coffers. That money was distributed in checks during the November kickoff event.
