APRIL 2, 2014
Arizona Gives Day
This year, Foothills Food Bank, HopeKids, Wild At Heart, Triple R Horse Rescue and Desert Foothills Land Trust have all signed on for Arizona Gives Day April 9.
In partnership with the nonprofits above, The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits (Alliance) and Arizona Grantmakers Forum (AGF) are pleased to announce the return of Arizona’s statewide day of giving for a second year. Presented by FirstBank, Arizona Gives Day is scheduled for April 9, 2014. The 24-hour online giving initiative encourages Arizonans to recognize and financially support the efforts of various nonprofits from across the state. In addition to fundraising, Arizona Gives Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of the state’s nonprofit sector and educate communities on the benefits of online giving.
“After seeing the success of this event last year we are excited to have this event return in Arizona, and raise more than before,” said Patrick McWhortor, president and CEO of the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits. “We hope to have as many as 10,000 Arizonans support our nonprofit community that day, raising much-needed dollars for these worthwhile organizations.”
According to Marissa Theisen, president and CEO of the Arizona Grantmakers Forum, the impact of individual donors on the state’s many nonprofit organizations will be felt for years to come. “These funds will help organizations change lives, build leaders and champion so many good causes.”
