    “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 program is supported by our presenting sponsor FirstBank, along with a variety of other sponsor organizations.

    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.

    Though Arizona Gives Day only happens once a year, this website is available for year-round giving with the purpose of building the spirit of philanthropy throughout Arizona’s communities. Any qualified 501c3 organization is welcome to register, and any donor is welcome to create a login to keep track of their Arizona Gives donations throughout the year.

    Join us and invest in Arizona!”
