Amplify Austin is gearing up for their annual 24-hour online giving day, starting on March 8th at 6pm.

According to their website...

Amplify Austin Day is our city's annual community-wide day of online giving. The 24- hour period provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together while helping local nonprofits. Over the past three years, Amplify Austin has raised over $16.2M for hundreds of local organizations. In 2015, 41 percent of the 44,700 Amplify Austin donations were first time gifts to nonprofit organizations. Together we raised over $7.7M for over 500 Central Texas nonprofits.

Last year, over 500 nonprofits participated in Amplify Austin Day.  We are hoping to raise over $9M for more than 600 nonprofits on March 8-9, 2016. All of these organizations play an important role in making Central Texas a better place to live. Amplify Austin Day raises much-needed funds for nonprofits of all sizes, in all areas of service, and we leave the choosing to you. Connect with one or more of our nonprofit partners today and find your passion for giving back to Central Texas! Get ready to amp up the giving on March 8-9, 2016!
