What is Arizona Gives Day?
Arizona Gives Day is a powerful 24 hour online giving movement that unites Arizonans around causes they believe in. Hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and the Arizona Grantmakers Forum, Arizona Gives Day is a great way for nonprofits, large and small, new and established, to generate excitement and resources for their mission, learn how to use new digital tools and fundraising strategies, and connect to the community and donors.
This single statewide day of online giving has raised $13.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since 2013. Participating nonprofits also receive training, marketing support and a chance to win bonus prize money.
The Arizona Gives website is a secure and trusted place to make donations throughout the year as all nonprofits have been vetted to ensure they are a valid 501c3 organization. Donations received are distributed to nonprofits on a monthly basis.
Why is Arizona Gives Day important?
Arizona nonprofits do much more than provide necessary services to our communities - they are an integral part of our state's economy. Annually, they have an economic impact of $22.4 billion, or nearly 8% of Arizona's gross state product and the AZ Nonprofit Impact report states the sector employs 167,000 paid staff and 158,000 indirect/induced jobs. (325,000 direct and indirectly)
Monetary donations are the most direct way to help a nonprofit make an impact: they allow nonprofits to allocate funds where they are most needed. Arizona Gives Day is focused on helping participating nonprofits raise funds that are critical to supporting their work.
Participating nonprofit organizations have won a share of $180,000 in Performance and Bonus Prize Money in past years. There are a variety of prize categories based on the size of nonprofits, money raised during specific hours of the day, special prizes just for Alliance Members, as well as random drawing winners.
Where does it all happen? AZGives.org
In order to address much of the feedback provided by past participants, the event took place on an all new website in 2017 for a more user friendly experience for both nonprofits and donors.
Updates and new features continued to be added each year. Features include a convenient shopping cart so donors can give to multiple nonprofits in a single transaction, an option for donors to easily help cover a nonprofit's participation costs, streamlined registration or re-enrollment process, individual fundraising pages as well as company employee giving landing pages.
