Mark your calendars, APF Friends – Amplify Austin is coming March 8-9, 2016! We’re excited to be part of the 4th annual Amplify Austin – our city’s 24-hour online giving campaign, which raises millions of dollars for hundreds of local nonprofits.
Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 for improvements and enhancements to Austin’s parks, trails and green spaces, but we can’t do it without you! Help us reach our goal and make this the best Amplify yet.
From new playscapes like the one at Dove Springs District Park, to increased fitness programming all over our city, your support means together we can make improvements to more parks, in more neighborhoods, and in more ways than ever before. To make your dollars go even further, our awesome partners at St. David’s Foundation will boost Amplify donations to APF with a partial match!
Sound good? Here’s how you can help:
Giving has never been so easy! You can give now by scheduling your donation or mark your calendar to give live anytime from March 8th at 6pm to March 9th at 6pm! Either way, your gift will be recorded on the day of Amplify Austin and contribute to our overall goal of $10,000. Help us give the gift of great parks to every Austinite!
