Arizona Gives Day
April 5, 2016
Arizona Gives Day is a statewide, grassroots day of giving that will take place on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Join thousands of other Arizonans and “invest in Arizona” by donating to your favorite charities.
Go to azgives.org to donate. Search by specific locations or categories, such as “arts”, “animals” or “environment” to find your cause.
Arizona Gives Day connects causes and supporters in order to enrich and empower Arizona as a whole. The day also helps raise awareness about Arizona nonprofits and the important work they do in our community.
This year we plan to reach a greater number of individual donors, and hope to raise more than $3 million for nonprofits across our state. On April 5, we are asking Arizonans to donate to their favorite local cause. If each Arizonan gave just $1 we’d double our goal and raise over $6 million.
All donations made through the Arizona Gives Day website (azgives.org) are tax-deductible, may be matched, and are deposited directly into the bank accounts of the chosen nonprofits.
How to Support
In addition to online donations, Arizona Gives Day supporters can share information about the day and participating nonprofits via social media to help generate awareness and participation.
Money Raised in Previous Arizona Gives Days

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.
