This Thursday, 600 non-profits across Austin are gearing up for 24 hours of fundraising madness! It’s the second year of Amplify Austin, the city-wide giving craze put on by I Live Here, I Give Here.
Starting at 6 PM March 20 until 6 PM March 21, Austinites will come together to support their favorite homegrown charities and organizations. Last year, ASA came in 2nd place, and this year, we hope to raise even more! The top 30 non-profits receive amplifying gifts, and every hour, there’s a prize for the organization that raises the most.
ASA also has the amazing opportunity to increase our donations by 50%! St. David’s Foundation, a longtime supporter of AIDS Services of Austin, will match all donations 50 cents on the dollar.
So what does that mean?
The chart on the right shows how many people we help in a month in different programs. It also shows the impact of your support in a normal month. Add in Amplify and a 50% match, and you can see how big of an impact a small donation can have!
