Arizona Gives Day is a collaboration that began in 2013 between the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum. It is a statewide, 24-hour, online giving campaign that takes place the first Tuesday of April each year. The single, statewide day of giving has raised $7.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since 2013.
This event helps people find, learn about and contribute to the causes they believe in. Arizona Gives Day also enables nonprofits to share their stories and engage the community through a unique online giving platform. Arizona Gives Day is a day that Arizonans can collectively recognize the impact that our local nonprofits have on communities across the state.
