Today is Amplify Austin Day here in Central Texas! What is that you ask? It is an online event held over a 24-hour period where more than 600 local nonprofits benefit from a surge of online giving. It starts today at 6 PM and ends tomorrow at 6 PM.
The event was created by a local organization called I Live Here, I Give Here. Over the past years they have raised $16.2 million through Amplify Austin. In 2015, 41 percent of the 44,700 Amplify Austin donations were first time gifts to nonprofit organizations.
Getting involved is super easy. All you have to do is go to the Amplify Austin site, select a nonprofit and donate to their page. That’s it! You can donate to as many nonprofits as you’d like.
A few of our local nonprofit partners are participating, you can check them out below:
