Arizonans to come together to raise as much money as possible for the state’s nonprofits in 24 hours
The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits in partnership with Arizona Grantmakers Forum, is doing something never done before in Arizona. AZ Gives Day is a day for Arizonans to come together to raise as much money as possible for the state’s nonprofits in 24 hours on March 20.
Arizona Gives Day is a joint effort to leverage the collective energy of our nonprofit community to:
~build sound relationships with new donors and increase the engagement of individuals with the Arizona’s nonprofit community
~expand the capacity of nonprofits to incorporate the fastest growing source of individual investors: online giving
~relieve pressure on institutional investors (foundations and corporations) to be funders of first choice for so many nonprofits
~generate media messages which help to educate the wider public about the value and contributions of community impact missions in our state
On March 20, from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. supporters will go online and simply click to make tax-deductible donations.
The idea is simple! There are several ways to participate in this event:
~You can visit the Foothills Food Bank page on the Arizona Gives Day website and donate, donate and donate some more! Donations can be made starting at 12 a.m. on March 20 on www.azgives.org.
~Visit the Foothills Food Bank Facebook page and Like them by clicking the Like button!
~Visit the Foothills Food Bank Twitter Page and Follow them by clicking the Follow button!
~Tell everyone you know about the Foothills Food Bank's mission supporting the needy in our community!
Please help the Foothills Food Bank reach or exceed their goal of raising $20,000.
Even if you can’t participate in Arizona Gives Day, it is never too late to donate to the Foothills Food Bank, especially now as they work diligently to prepare for their move into a building that will allow them to better serve the community.
