Austin wouldn’t be an amazing place to visit or call home without the numerous nonprofit organizations scattered throughout the city. Whether you live in Austin or simply enjoy the city from a visitor’s perspective, you have the opportunity to give back to its local community this year at Amplify Austin! For a full 24-hour period from March 5-6, you have the chance to donate to your favorite nonprofit and others across Central Texas. With over 500 nonprofits registered this year, you’ll have no trouble spreading the love when finding a cause that personally speaks to you!
Ranging from 27 different categories, Amplify Austin has an extensive list of causes you can contribute to. From animal welfare to victim services, Amplify has plenty of options to choose from. Ballet Austin or the Austin Children’s Choir will appeal to art and culture lovers and those wishing to see Central Texas’ music programs thrive. If you’re looking to give back to the veteran community, SongwritingWith:Soldiers, The Joyful Horse Project and Family Eldercare are some options to donate to among others.
Donating for 2015 starts at 6 p.m. on March 5 and will end at 6 p.m. the following day. If giving back isn’t enough, your donation will increased by incentive matching dollars from Amplify sponsors.
