Austin is known for being warm and friendly. for volunteering and participating in community efforts, and for being informed about issues that we care deeply about. However, according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s How America Gives study Austin is ranked #32 among the 50 largest cities that give the most to charity.
To help make this ranking a mark of the past, I Live Here, I Give Here created Amplify Austin – a community-wide day of online philanthropy with the goal of raising $1 million in 24 hours from March 4 (7pm) until March 5 (7pm).
Beginning 7 pm on March 4th, 2013, go to http://www.AmplifyATX.org to select the Seedling Foundation as your charity of choice. Every dollar donated will be matched by 16 percent! In addition, $1,000 is awarded each hour to the nonprofit that raises the most dollars for that hour throughout Amplify Austin.
Random donors throughout the day will receive a surprise, in person performance from one of our beloved Austin musicians! Who doesn’t want to be serenaded?!
You support us in so many ways; thanks for considering us on March 4th!
