February 26, 2017 - Event Recap
Amplify Austin is taking place next week from 6 pm March 2 to 6 pm March 3, 2017.
This annual, online, city-wide day of giving provides an easy and fun way to give to the causes we all love and admire. And the results have been spectacular! Over the past four years Amplify Austin has raised over $24.7 million for hundreds of local organizations. In 2016 alone, $8.5 million was raised for over 600 Central Texas nonprofit organizations. This year the goal is even greater – to raise over $9.5 million for the close to 900 organizations who have registered.
When deliberating about which of your favorite nonprofit organizations are worthy of your donations, we hope you’ll consider giving to Impact Austin. As our supporters know, we’ve given more than $5.5 million in annual, high-impact grants to local nonprofits to support substantive changes for the lives of those in our community. Check out the Impact Austin profile on the Amplify website to learn more and see photos and videos of selected community partners.
We’re very excited to announce a $3,000 Challenge Grant contributed by Impact Austin members to get the effort underway. All donations received for Impact Austin through the Amplify Austin campaign between 6:00 pm on March 2nd and 6:00 pm on March 3rd will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $3,000!
Funds generated through Amplify Austin will be used to support upgrades and integration of our technology including our SalesForce, Constant Contact and Office 365 databases. Increased efficiency and streamlined operations will result in time savings so our volunteers can stay focused on the important grant making work for the Central Texas community.
