More than 3,000 DFW-area nonprofits are participating, including more than 20 Richardson nonprofits, such as the Network of Community Ministries, the Eisemann Center Foundation, the Richardson Citizens Fire Academy Alumni Association, the Richardson Theatre Centre and Friends of the Richardson Public Library.

Early giving is open now through May 4.
