Arizona Gives Day is Tuesday

Arizona Gives Day is Tuesday

SOUTHERN, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tuesday, April 3 is "Arizona Gives Day," when Arizonans from Bullhead City to Bisbee are asked to "invest in Arizona" by giving to organizations that are doing important work.

Participating nonprofits include large and small organizations dedicated to arts and culture, children and youth, community development, health
services, animal welfare and more.

We have included a list of all southern Arizona organizations at the bottom of this story. You can also see them HERE and HERE.

Every single one of the groups across Arizona work to better the state - and all are in need of community support.

Arizona Gives Day is a grassroots, statewide day of giving that invites Arizonans to support their favorite causes.

Donations can be scheduled in advance (to be processed on Tuesday, April 3) at azgives.org or can be submitted day of on April 3.

Hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum, and presented by FirstBank, Arizona Gives Day has raised more than $10.14 million for Arizona nonprofits since its founding in 2013.

"Arizona Gives Day is striving to build a community of philanthropists and help everyone understand that it does not matter what your income might be," said Laurie Liles, president and CEO of Arizona Grantmakers Forum. "Anyone can make a difference with any dollar amount they are able to give."

For participating nonprofits, Arizona Gives Day offers an opportunity to raise awareness about their work, connect with new donors and win prize money to supplement individual donations. Last year, Arizona nonprofits raised $2.74 million through the generosity of more than 18,000 donors, with many giving to multiple organizations.

"The power of collective giving can be transformative," says Kristen Merrifield, CEO of the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits. "On April 3, if a million people gave just $10 to their favorite organization, we could raise $10 million for Arizona nonprofits. That's incredible to think about."
