The biggest day of giving in Central Texas kicked off Wednesday evening.

Now in its 11th year, Amplify Austin Day began at 6 p.m., and will continue through 6 p.m. Thursday, March 2.

For 24 hours, the community is invited to donate through the platform

You can choose from more than 700 nonprofits in seven counties in Central Texas that need support. The platform allows you to search for causes you love and learn more about the impact the organizations make to help you decide where to give.
