Nominate a family
At Givingmas, we have a passion for helping those in need, who are themselves trying to improve their future.
Who can send in a nomination?
The short answer is basically, anyone. Historically we have received nominations from individuals (like you), civic groups, various shelters, houses of worship, even self-nominations are accepted.
How are recipients chosen?
There is a dedicated "selection committee" which reviews all submitted nominations to verify eligibility and that the nominee meets the specific criteria.
Do you know a family or individual who would benefit from our approach?
If you would like to nominate a family or individual for us to consider for this year's support, please read and confirm the family/individual meets the qualifying criteria below and then complete the form with all fields. Once received, a member of the Givingmas team will be in touch with you to discuss. Please be detailed in telling us all you can about the family and why you believe we should provide our support. Please note, your identity will be kept completely confidential from the nominee unless you give us written permission to share your information. Finally, please exclude any reference to ethnicity, religious beliefs or sexual orientation as those topics are irrelevant in our decision making process.
Minimum qualifiers for a nominee to be considered
Our approach is to "offer a hand up, not a hand out", with the intent of helping a deserving family or individual improve their quality of life. We only have a few requirements for nominees to be considered:
That qualifying criteria is the nominee is in a financially challenged situation, at least one of the individuals/family are actively employed, full or part-time,
The nominated family or individual is both in need of, and accepting of, guidance, advice and/or assistance (financial or otherwise).
if there is a history of substance abuse the nominee must be able to verify they have been clean and sober for at least 24 months.
The family is expected to demonstrate their willingness to seeking social independence and will be held accountable to mutually agreed upon commitments with Givingmas
The nominated family/ndividual must reside in the DFW Metroplex
*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,
