Dallas Texas Nonprofit Fundraising

Dallas Texas Nonprofit Fundraising













Dallas Texas is the 9th largest city in the United States. The city’s prominence arose from its historical importance as a center for the oil and cotton industries, and its position along numerous railroad lines. The United States Census Bureau estimates the Dallas City population increased to 1,341,075 as of July 1, 2017.

From 2010 to 2016, Dallas recorded the highest net domestic migration in the country, in excess of 300,000. Overall, the Dallas–Fort Worth metropolitan area had the second largest population increase among metro areas in the U.S., which recorded a population of 7,233,323 as of July 1, 2016, an increase of 807,000 people since the 2010 census.

Dallas Fundraising for Nonprofits

Dallas, a modern metropolis in north Texas, is a commercial, professional sports and cultural hub of the region. Some of the best-known Nonprofit organizations are:

  • Susan G. Komen.
  • The Dallas Museum of Art
  • North Texas Food Bank
  • The American Heart Association
  • The Boy Scouts of America

Although Dallas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States, the ability to raise funds for nonprofit organizations is one of the most difficult in the United States. Despite the difficulties, the facts are that fundraising in Dallas occurs on a daily basis for various Churches, Synagogues, Libraries, Medical Centers, Universities, Colleges, and community service agencies.    Hence, the expertise of a Fundraising Company like Carlton & Company is really needed for a successful fundraising campaign that will meet its projected goals.

Even in the midst of last-minute shopping and holiday preparations, the Giving Season takes over in our country and many find time to donate to charitable organizations. However, that may not be the case in the DFW area according to recent research.  As a result of the studies, It appears that Thirty-one percent of all annual giving, based on Dallas Fundraising, occurs in December, and 12 percent happens in the last three days of the year. Therefore, it has been determined that the year-end request for funds brings in 26 percent to 50 percent of annual funds for only 28 percent of the nonprofits.

A company that studies nonprofit contributions ranked Dallas as 145 and Fort Worth as 147 out of 187 cities in the Nation — based on charitable giving, volunteering, and service during 2017.  In contrast, Freemont and San Francisco, CA were ranked 1 & 2


Carlton & Company can help guide Dallas Texas nonprofit organizations through a major gift or capital campaign. As a result, we make fundraising in Texas so much easier.  Finally, Carlton & Company has an office here to help raise funds for nonprofits.  You have heard this slogan before, “Call us first or call us last” and it’s really true.  We are the fundraising experts and look forward to talking with you.
