What is Arizona Gives Day?
April 7th, 2020 marks the seventh annual Arizona Gives Day. Arizona Gives Day is an online event started in 2013 through a collaboration between the Arizona Alliance of Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers. On the day, people are encouraged to donate to Arizona nonprofit organizations. It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring attention to these great missions. DollarDays is headquartered in Arizona, so we felt it important to highlight the great work being done in our own backyard.
The Need in Arizona
Unfortunately, the reason there are so many great outreach programs is because the need is high.
To illustrate the need in Arizona:
These are just a few examples, but they show how much local communities need nonprofit outreach.
It can be stressful to think about where to begin if you decide give back. That is why events like Arizona Gives Day are extremely valuable for shining a light on what is currently happening in the community and pointing you in the right direction.
We are trying to do our part by providing a Wishlist platform for nonprofits to showcase their specific, needed items and enlist their supporters to donate in bulk. Nonprofits are not always able to rely on steady financial support. The ability to communicate exactly is needed and receive those items in wholesale quantities is invaluable.
