Arizona Gives Day, the annual one-day online giving campaign, was hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and the Arizona Grantmakers Forum for the third year on April 7. The first Arizona Gives Day event began in 2013 in order to rekindle the funding that typically slows after the holidays. In 2013, Arizona Gives Day raised over $1M. This increased to about $1.5M in 2014, and a new record was set this month with just over $2M raised for nonprofit organizations across Arizona.
Providing both large and small donors a chance to come together and see the impact of their collaborative giving, the website at azgives.org shows results by most dollars raised for small, mid-sized, and large nonprofits, as well as by most donors.
