The 12th annual Amplify Austin Day — a yearly day of giving hosted by local nonprofit I Live Here I Give Here — begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6.

The 24-hour event encourages Central Texans to donate to local nonprofit organizations as part of one of the biggest giving events in the region. Since 2013, the event has raised $102 million for more than 1,400 local nonprofits.

This year, 75 new nonprofits will join the roster of 700+ organizations accepting donations as part of the event.

Not sure where to start? Search for your cause on the Amplify Austin Day website — you can filter by cause, county, leadership demographics, or by organizations with donation matching opportunities.

Participants can also donate to the Amplify Fund, which supports all participating nonprofits.

Already excited to give back? The Amplify platform is open for early giving now.
