Permian Basin Gives has a fundraising goal of $1.459 million

Tuesday is a great day for giving in Midland and the Permian Basin.

Permian Basin Gives — a day-long event encouraging residents to create meaningful impact through nonprofits that serve the region — will take place on Tuesday. The fundraising goal is $1.459 million.

“Permian Basin Gives began in 2020 just as nonprofits needed to cancel or postpone their fundraising events,” wrote Laurie Johnson, executive director of the Nonprofit Management Center. “Permian Basin Gives is the result of many thoughts from nonprofit executive directors about how to replace that lost revenue. Since its inception, the annual Giving Day has generated $3.8 million in donations to our local nonprofits.

Johnson said 117 nonprofit organizations are participating in this year’s event. She also said the Permian Basin Gives online initiative has brought nonprofits together to support each other by sharing the same website,, which allows donors to learn about other organizations. non-profit.

“When donors visit the website, they select each organization they want to support and can also search for other nonprofits,” Johnson said. “By working together during Permian Basin Gives, everyone wins.”

Kay Crites, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, told The Reporter-Telegram in an email that Permian Basin Gives has resulted in nearly $40,000 in donations to BBBS over the past two years.

“This is money that can be used to conduct background checks on volunteers to help keep children safe in our program and to organize activities to help volunteers and children bond” , Crites wrote in an email. “It can also be used for more mundane, but essential expenses, such as postage and utilities.”

Additionally, Permian Basin Gives has allowed organizations to create new individual connections in communities for future donations and potential volunteers, she said.

“Permian Basin Gives has brought in millions of dollars to help our local agencies thrive and fulfill their missions of supporting our communities,” Crites wrote. “This funding has been a lifeline over the past two years when fundraisers have been canceled and people’s attention has shifted to other issues.”

Autumn West of Midland Shared Spaces noted that even with $100 worth of oil, many in Midland and across the region are feeling the effects of inflation, which Bloomberg says is as bad in Midland as just about anywhere. what other place in the country.

“Now, more than ever, every dollar has the power to make a difference to a nonprofit organization,” Vest wrote. “Nonprofit organizations provide essential community services and touch our lives through emergency response services, health and wellness programs, education, entertainment and more.”

Permian Basin Gives is a day about individual giving and being reminded of other opportunities in the nonprofit sector. With nearly $4 million in donations over two years, he has been a good complement to the foundation’s giving and the efforts of individual organizations.

“Every day, Midland nonprofits make a difference for you and your neighbors,” said Mark Palmer, executive director of the Abell-Hanger Foundation. “Help them continue to make that difference.”
