“The day our state united to build a better tomorrow”
Starting at 12:00 a.m. (yes, midnight) on April 9, anyone can start donating to the nonprofit of their choice, or several if so inclined. This is a state-wide event.
Arizona Gives Day is a day for Arizonans to come together to show support for the state’s nonprofits in 24 hours. On April 9, 2014, from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm, supporters of Arizona’s nonprofits will go online, connect with causes they care about and make a tax-deductible donation. Supporters will search for participating nonprofits and simply click to donate. The donation stays local and helps our nonprofits provide much needed services and support for people in the state of Arizona.
Giving day lasts till 11:59 p.m. that night and large thousand dollar prizes are awarded to:
Most Donors Overall (first prize is $18,000, plus several others to 102nd prize)
Most Dollars Overall (first prize is $15,000, down to $500)
Small Nonprofits Most Donors (first prize is $9,500)
Golden Ticket (Most Donors per hour) starting at 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., for 8 prizes till 11:59 p.m. Last year I watched online as Tucson’s Ben’s Bells won a few of these hourly prizes for the most donors per hour.
Most Donors for Rural organizations (only 3 prizes)
After midnight on April 9th (morning of April 10), go to their website and see how many of your favorite nonprofits won prizes, and also how much they profited from this giving day by your donations.
