For the past two years, Amplify Austin has become a wildly successful 24-hour giving blitz that helps us keep pace with the need for food assistance right when we need it most. This year's amped-up goal to raise seven million dollars for Austin nonprofits includes a generous matching gift of $1 million from the St. David's Foundation and an additional $1.2 million in matching gifts from other generous donors.
Not only will your donations be matched, but there are even more opportunities for us to multiply your impact through booster prizes.
Donations can be scheduled in advance starting January 26th. Schedule your donation today. Amplify Austin starts at 6:00 P.M. on Thursday, March 5th and ends at 6:00 P.M. on Friday, March 6th.
Our most pressing need is to close the hunger gap and reach every person in the community at risk of hunger. Despite our best efforts, we are missing 30 percent of people in Central Texas who need food assistance. That’s why we’ve set an ambitious goal of raising 300,000 meals during Amplify this year.
When you give during Amplify Austin day, you’ll allow us to continue our important work in Austin and throughout Central Texas. Because of you, families will know that there is a reliable, safe and healthy option for food if they ever find themselves in a financial crisis.
