Arizona Gives Day is a grassroots, statewide day of giving that invites Arizonans to support their favorite causes. Donations can be scheduled in advance (to be processed on Tuesday, April 4) at azgives.org or can be submitted day-of on April 4.
Hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum, and presented by FirstBank, Arizona Gives Day has raised more than $7.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since its founding in 2013.
On April 4, the public will be asked to “invest in Arizona” by giving to organizations that are doing important work to improve the well-being of our state. Participating nonprofits include large and small organizations dedicated to arts and culture, children and youth, community development, health services, animal welfare and more. Each one works to better our community, and all are in need of community support.
“The beauty of Arizona Gives Day is that anyone can be a philanthropist by donating on April 4,” said Laurie Liles, president and CEO of Arizona Grantmakers Forum. “It’s an excellent opportunity to support local nonprofits that help our communities thrive.”
For participating nonprofits, Arizona Gives Day offers an opportunity to raise awareness about their work, connect with new donors and win prize money to supplement individual donations. Last year, Arizona nonprofits raised $2.84 million through the generosity of 16,450 donors, with many giving to multiple organizations.
“Arizona Gives Day continues to introduce brand new donors to our participating nonprofits,” says Kristen Merrifield,…
