Nominate a family
We have a passion for helping those in need working to improve their future. Givingmas has access to resources who can assist families in solving critical challenges that are preventing them from thriving in our community.
WHO CAN SUBMIT A NOMINATION?
The short answer is basically, anyone. Historically we have received nominations from individuals, civic groups, various shelters, houses of worship, and even self-nominations are accepted.

Minimum qualifiers for a nominee to be considered...
Our approach is to "offer a hand up, not a handout," with the intent of helping a deserving family or individual improve their quality of life.
The nominee is in a financially challenging situation, and at least one of the family members is actively employed, full or part-time.
The nominated family or individual needs guidance, advice, and/or assistance (financial or otherwise).
If there is a history of substance abuse, the nominee must verify they have been clean and sober for at least 24 months.
The family is expected to demon-strate their willing-ness to seek social independence & will be held accountable
to mutually agreed-upon commitments.
The nominated family/individual must reside in the DFW Metroplex (Dallas, TX).
*Givingmas reserves the right, without recourse, to suspend any and all support in the event a chosen nominee does not deliver on their commitments, without reasonable justification.
