Arizona Gives Day 2014
The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits, Arizona Grantmakers Forum and FirstBank are promoting Arizona Gives Day 2014 on April 9. The 24-hour online giving initiative encourages Arizonans to recognize and financially support the efforts of 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.
Arizonans can go online at AzGives.org and pledge their financial support to the nonprofit of their choice. Donors will select the recipient of their online donation and the donation will go directly to their chosen organization. Guidelines and registration information are available at the website.
“After seeing the success of this event last year, we are excited to have this event return in Arizona, and raise more than before,” says 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.”
