Arizona Gives Day has taken place on the first Tuesday of April since 2013. This year, DollarDays is celebrating our 9th annual AZ Gives Day in the great state of Arizona. With a 24-hour campaign like this one, it’s so inspiring to see so many people participate and give back within such a short timeframe. This celebration is a collaboration between the Arizona Alliance of Nonprofits and the Arizona Grantmakers in order to help raise more money for all of the great nonprofit organizations in Arizona that are making a difference. Since the DollarDays headquarters is located in Phoenix, Arizona, we are extra excited to draw attention to this special day and also bring awareness to all of the deserving organizations and people who can benefit from your support.
