Donate

Denton is your city, and together we make a difference. Here are opportunities to donate books, make online donations, and give your time and resources to the causes you love.

  • Animal Shelter

    The Linda McNatt Animal Care and Adoption Center is funded through city tax dollars but there is a need for more. We utilize donations to make animals more comfortable during their stay. They can be dropped off at the Center during business hours. We can always use:

    • New or used towels or small blankets (no electric blankets)
    • Plain clay kitty litter
    • Newspapers
    • Tennis balls, Kong toys or other sturdy washable dog toys
    • Wand-type cat toys and washable plastic ball cat toys
    • Natural dog and cat treats
    • Quality canned and dry, cat and dog food

    Contact the Center at (940) 349-7594 or email AnimalServices@cityofdenton.com

  • Denton Animal Support Foundation
    Your donation will be placed where most needed, or you may direct your donation to the purpose of your choice. Denton Animal Support Foundation
  • P-L-U-S One

    Sometimes citizens experience short-term financial emergencies, which prevent them from paying for vital utility service. The P-L-U-S One program – Prevent Loss of Utility Service – helps families keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. You can help by contacting a Customer Service representative at (940) 349-8700.

    The amount that you pledge will be added to your monthly bill. Each month, the funds contributed to the program are forwarded to Interfaith Ministries, which disburses the funds to families to help maintain their utility service. Contributions are tax-deductible and you may discontinue at any time.

  • Emily Fowler Library Foundation

    The Emily Fowler Library Foundation supports Denton Public Library by providing resources for services and enhancements above the library’s annual budget. General gifts support large-scale projects that benefit the Denton community. Specific gifts may be made to fund capital projects or library furnishings and equipment. Naming rights for library meeting rooms, collections, and buildings are also options for giving. Bequests are gratefully acknowledged at each library location. For more information call Director of Libraries Jennifer Bekker at (940) 349-8753.
