St. David’s Foundation has once again pledged to donate $1 million in matching funds during I Live Here, I Give Here‘s seventh annual Amplify Austin event. Amplify Austin is Central Texas’ annual day of giving which takes place during a 24-hour period February 28 – March 1, 2019. The Foundation will also serve as official headquarters for the event. For the last six years, Amplify Austin has provided an easy and fun way for the entire community to give together while helping local nonprofits, and last year the event raised $10.3 million!
The matching funds from St. David’s Foundation are distributed on a prorated basis to St. David’s Foundation nonprofit grant partners that participate in Amplify Austin Day. The more donations that a nonprofit receives, the more funds they are awarded to support the mission of their organization.
Last year, the Foundation’s grant partners were among the top performers during Amplify Austin, and raised over $4 million. Each of those grant partners then received a boost from St. David’s Foundation that increased their total amount raised by almost 30%! We can’t wait to see how much our community gives this year, and are so excited to be part of this event, which is helping to make Central Texas the healthiest community in the world!
