Amplify Austin Day
Amplify Austin Day is our community’s annual day of giving. The 24-hour period provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together while helping local nonprofits. Over the past five years, Amplify Austin has raised over $35M for hundreds of local organizations. Together we raised $9.8M for 700 Central Texas nonprofits in 2017. In 2017, 39 percent of the 64,500 Amplify Austin Day donations were first-time gifts to nonprofit organizations.
AmplifyATX.org strives to meet the needs of our community by providing an easy-to-use digital marketplace that connects local donors with Austin area nonprofits all year long. We inspire the people of Austin and their neighbors to make a difference in their community by connecting them with the causes they’re passionate about on one easy-to-use platform where they can donate to charities in their neighborhood.
