Your Amplify Austin Day
Put your passion to work by becoming a Fundraising Champion for Amplify Austin Day. Whether you fundraise for one nonprofit or many, we will provide you with tools, resources, and hands-on support to help you make your greatest impact on Central Texas.
Fundraising is as Easy as...
Step One: Sign-Up to Fundraise
Amplify Austin Day officially kicks off at 6 pm on March 6th and ends at 6 pm on March 7th, but early giving is already underway! Any donation made on AmplifyATX.org between January 24th and March 7th at 6 pm will qualify for Amplify Austin Day prizes and incentives.
There are two ways that you can make a positive impact as a fundraiser on Amplify Austin Day:
OPTION #1: Fundraise for one organization: Show that you are passionate about a nonprofit’s work by creating a personal fundraising page for them on AmplifyATX.org.
To sign-up as a Fundraising Champion, search our catalog of causes to find the right nonprofit for you and click the "Fundraise" button on the nonprofit's profile. With over 700 participating organizations across seven Central Texas counties representing 20 cause categories, including racial equity, civil rights, civic engagement, the environment, animals, the arts, poverty, basic needs, education, and more, there are bountiful opportunities to promote a cause that is meaningful to you.
OPTION #2: Fundraise for all organizations (Free Agent Fundraiser): Can’t pick just one nonprofit to fundraise for? Then this option is for you! Visitors to your page can search the website and give to any cause that speaks to them. Donations made through your page will count towards your fundraising goal! This is a great fit for people who are passionate about several organizations and can't choose just one!
Sign-up as a Free Agent Fundraiser by clicking the "Sign-Up" button on the Fundraiser Search page. While you’re there, you can look around for Fundraisers you may know who are working to make Central Texas a better place to live, work, and play!
Step Two: Tell Your Story
Login to your Fundraiser Dashboard to customize your page with images, text, video, and your fundraising goal. This is your opportunity to share why you are passionate about your cause and why you decided to sign-up to fundraise on Amplify Austin Day. This is also a good time to take a moment and connect with the nonprofit(s) you are fundraising for to learn more about their campaign and how you can help them achieve their goals.
We also recommend that you plan how you will thank your donors when you receive donations. Saying thank you is the most important step in fundraising and a personal thank you note goes a long way to ensure that donors feel their contribution is valuable and impactful.
Step Three: Spread the Word
Now that your fundraiser is all set up, it’s time to spread the word! Share your story and your fundraiser page with your family and friends by email, social media, posts, or text message. Don’t forget to use our hashtags #AmplifyAustinDay and #ILiveHereIGiveHere on your social media posts to join the community-wide conversation.
Take a look through our ready-to-share tools below. We also recommend checking in with the nonprofit(s) you are fundraising for to access any campaign-specific graphics, images, or videos that can help you spread the word.
