Arizona Gives Day is a grassroots, statewide single day of giving that invites Arizonans to find their favorite causes at AZGIVES.ORG on April 5, 2016, and donate day-of or schedule their donations in advance. Hosted by Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum and presented by FirstBank, Arizona Gives Day has raised $4.5 million for Arizona nonprofits since its founding in 2013.
On April 5, the public will be asked to INVEST IN ARIZONA by giving to organizations that are doing important work to improve well-being in our state. Participating nonprofits include large and small organizations working in arts and culture, children and youth, community development, health services, animal welfare and more. All better our community, and all are in need of community support.
Last year, 573 Arizona nonprofits raised $2,054,417 through the generosity of 17,260 donors with many donors giving to multiple organizations. The average donation was $86.
Prize money is available for participating nonprofit organizations that raise the most money. Categories will be based on annual revenue size or whether an organization is an Alliance member. Six Power Hours will also be available during which winners will be determined by the number of $100+, $50+ or $25+ donations received in a designated hour of the day.
