Amplify Austin Day is a fun and easy way for the community to give back to local nonprofits organizations like the Mothers’ Milk Bank Austin. During this 24-hour period of giving, participants visit their preferred nonprofit’s Amplify webpage and show their support for the organization by making a donation of $25 or more. Many of these individual donations are then “amplified” by fellow supporters and matching gifts from local businesses, corporations, and foundations.
No, you do not have to live in Austin, or the surrounding counties, to participate in Amplify Austin. In fact, we receive support from all of the United States during Amplify Austin and that’s because our donors know every dollar we receive during this 24-hours of giving has the potential to be even more through the matched gifts and hourly prizes.
