Calling all Austinites, dog fans and cat enthusiasts! Amplify Austin 2023 is just around the corner and we need you to join us to #AmplifyLifesaving this year!
This day of giving is very important for nonprofit organizations across Central Texas and APA! is honored to participate again this year. We want to make sure that all of our supporters that want to join in know exactly how they can help and what their support means!
The first thing you can do to get involved is make a donation using our Amplify Austin fundraising page. Whatever the amount, your donation makes an impact. From $10, which can help purchase enrichment activity supplies to $500, which provides basic care for a litter of pups or kittens, your gift is important and saves lives.
I Live Here I Give Here (ILHIGH), the organization that produces Amplify Austin, makes this 24-hour fundraiser extra fun through a little friendly competition between the participating nonprofits and monetary prizes for various categories!
Matches and Incentives from ILHIGH
$5,000 for most dollars raised
$5,000 for most unique donors ← This is one of the categories we are targeting!
$2,500 for most dollars raised during the early giving period
$25,000 from an anonymous donor for animal care and services organizations ← This grant is pro-rata which means that the more we raise, the more we get out of this pool!
$1,000/hour for the first 6 hours of Amplify Day for most dollars raised in the hour
$1,000/hour for the last 6 hours of Amplify Day for most unique donors in the hour
After you make your donation (thank you!), we’d be grateful if you’d create your own fundraising page in support of APA!. This is where voices really amplify!
The beauty of creating your fundraising page is that you can use it to encourage your friends and family to donate to APA!, too! Everyone has their own unique voice and story as to why they support our mission and when that is shared, people feel encouraged to join you in your support! Maybe you got your dog or cat from us or maybe you’re a foster or volunteer -- whatever your reason, we want to hear it and have a hunch your friends, family, and social media followers do too!
