So get your employees to come together and donate to their favorite causes on Amplify Austin Day. We think a little competition between departments or with another business is a good idea, too.
Be a Sponsor.
Sponsors drive the success of hundreds of nonprofits during Amplify Austin Day. Businesses and individuals can donate to the Amplify "stretch" fund, to incentivize gifts made on Amplify Austin Day. The stretch fund will make everyone's dollars go further on Amplify Austin Day maximizing the benefit to the participating nonprofits. We also award grand prizes and hourly prizes to nonprofits that really knocked it out of the park on the giving day -- be a prize sponsor!
