Amplify Austin, a 24-hour rush of charitable giving that helps capture and keep donations for groups doing good works in the greater Austin area, kicks off its second year March 21-22.
The mega-fundraiser organized by “I Live Here, I Give Here” aims to connect anyone and everyone with an interest in community projects with the groups making those projects happen. It was inspired by other single-day giving events in Colorado, Portland, Seattle and North Texas. Last year, during its debut event in Austin, Amplify raised $2.8 million for local groups.
Environmental groups are just one component of the 400 non-profits that people can choose to support. You can see the profiles of these 501c3-verified groups on the website.
Why give at this time? That’s easy. Your gift will be amplified by matching funds from major donors. Find out more at the FAQ for Amplify Austin.
