Amplify Austin Day 2019

Check out our resources below to see how you can easily donate funds directly from your donor advised fund (DAF) to the causes you care most about on this year's Amplify Austin Day (6 PM, February 28 - 6 PM, March 1).

What is Amplify Austin Day?

Amplify Austin Day, hosted by I Live Here I Give Here, is our city's annual day of giving, which will take place on February 28 at 6 PM - March 1 at 6 PM on AmplifyATX.org.

The 24-hour period provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together, while also helping local nonprofits. In 2018, the city raised over $10 MM for 700 local nonprofits. Over the past six years, Amplify Austin has raised $45 MM for hundreds of local organizations.

From Animal Care to Health Services, you can choose from a wide variety of causes and nonprofits to support. Whether you choose to support one local organization or many, your donation helps make our city sustainable and vibrant for all.
