AZ Gives Day supports local nonprofits and communities

A large-scale fundraising initiative seeks to strengthen Arizona nonprofits, a sector contributing approximately $22 billion dollars per year to the Gross State Product according to an Arizona State University Lodestar Center report. 

AZ Gives Day, a program started by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum, enables Arizonans to make a difference in their communities by “paying it forward” and donating to various local 501(c)3 organizations, ultimately resulting in a healthier economy and thriving communities. 

The day-long fundraising marathon sponsored by FirstBank, Freeport-McMoRan Foundation, Arizona Community Foundation, SRP, and many other Arizona businesses, has raised more than $30 million dollars for state and local nonprofits since 2013. And just last year, despite recent economic downturns via various rippling effects post-pandemic, Arizona Gives raised $7.3 million dollars – the efforts’ highest ever fundraising haul.

The Arizona Gives team believes the need to donate is bigger now more than ever. This campaign helps all Arizonans alike find, learn about, and contribute to causes they believe in, enables nonprofits to share their stories and engage with the community, and raises awareness about Arizona nonprofits. 

Whether Arizonans would like to donate to top-tier nonpartisan research groups like Common Sense Institute Arizona or offer support to philanthropic grantmaking organizations like the Arizona Flinn Foundation, over 1,000 charities are eligible for impactful donations through AZ Gives. 

The marathon will take place tomorrow, April 4, 2023. To learn more, visit their website:
