Live & Learn is joining more than 700 nonprofit organizations in Arizona Gives Day, an online fundraising initiative, on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. Presented by FirstBank, Arizona Gives Day will bring together Arizonans from across the state to raise awareness and financial support for nonprofit organizations statewide.
Arizonans are encouraged to help make a difference by investing in the nonprofit of their choice.
“This is a critical moment for us to come together and take action against the damages Coronavirus is inflicting on the nonprofit community in Phoenix-metro,” said Kristin Chatsworth, Executive Director. “We’re already seeing sharp increases in demand for services, but at the same time we’re having to cancel fundraisers and supply drives.”
“Since the inaugural event in 2013, Arizona Gives Day has raised more than $17 million for Arizona nonprofits. Arizonans continue to show their commitment and support to nonprofits through their giving. We are excited for the 2020 Arizona Gives Day and to further showcase the important work our nonprofits are doing in our communities,” said Jennifer Purcell, Vice President of Community Engagement of the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits.
The Arizona Gives Day early giving began March 17 and will continue through Arizona Gives Day, April 7. Participating organizations have the chance to win a portion of a $184,500 prize pool.
