Texoma Gives is a 16-hour day of giving that provides critical funding for our area nonprofits. Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation (WFACF) is partnering with area nonprofits to give thousands of donors from every community in a 24-county area of North Texas and Southern Oklahoma a chance to raise funds for local needs.

The purpose of an area-wide day like Texoma Gives is to bring the region together on one day, raising money and awareness for Texoma nonprofits. This initiative, organized by WFACF, provides citizens an onlinewebsite www.texomagives.org to find and support nonprofit organizations whose missions align with their passions. 

All donations made on September 15 through www.texomagives.org are eligible for “Prize Money” that will be awarded throughout the day.“Prize Money” has been made possible by the various sponsors listed on this home page.

From 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. on September 15, www.texomagives.org  will accept donations to raise unrestricted dollars for area nonprofits in Texoma. It is a day of giving to celebrate the nonprofits in Texoma.   What an impact we can make in Texoma when we join together for Texoma Gives! Support Lake Wichita and help create special memories for years to come for you, your family and future generations. Help leave a lasting impact on the community of Wichita Falls!


 

Lake Wichita is the third oldest reservoir in the State of Texas, completed in 1901. It has served the region proudly as the “Gem of North Texas”, as a recreation destination, as a social mecca, as a driving economic force, as a haven for the wise-use and conservation of fish and wildlife resources, and as a foundation for community growth by serving as a drinking water source. Having surpassed its expected 100-year life span, in its present state, Lake Wichita is no longer able to provide significant social, economic, ecological, or recreational benefits to the community. With your support, together we can return Lake Wichita to a state in which it provides significant economic, social, recreational, and ecological benefits to our community for another Century and beyond.

Investment for Wichita Falls


Lake Wichita is an outstanding investment for our community. In fact, just the work needed to revitalize the lake is expected to create 695-816 Texas jobs and increase total sales in Texas by $69-81million. Additionally, we should expect a century’s worth of economic benefits to return to our community when the project is completed.
