Austin’s biggest day of giving is here. Don’t miss out on the day of giving, that like Oprah or Pelé, is known by many as a single word…Amplify.
One of the reasons we love living in Austin is the generous spirit of its residents. There is no day of the year where Austin’s propensity to give back is on fuller display than Amplify Austin. For 24 hours (from 6PM March 1st through 6PM March 2nd) Austinites come together in a way no other city can. It is an incredible feat done in a way that perfectly reflects the personality of the city we know and love. Driven by technology, Austin has rewritten the rules of fundraising by showcasing that small contributions make a big difference.
Last year, Amplify Austin drew Austinite’s old and new as 39% of the 64,500 contributions were made by first time donors. The contribution were made to non-profits large and small including those profiled on ModXMan including: The Andy Roddick Foundation, The Contemporary Austin, Dell Children’s Medical Center, The Rise School Austin and ZACH Scott Theatre. Additionally, the St. David’s Foundation will be offering a $1,000,000 dollar match to grant partners in the Austin community who participate in Amplify Austin.
In 2017, Amplify Austin raised over $9.8 million dollars for over 700 local non-profits. We know Austin has a generous spirit and with your help, Amplify can achieve the $10,000,000 number to help take Austin to the next level in fundraising and giving back.
