What is it?
Arizona Gives Day is an annual opportunity for Arizonan’s to support non-profit organizations that make a difference in our community.
First started in 2013, the collaboration between the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and the Arizona Grantmakers has helped raise more than $23 million for Arizona’s nonprofit organizations. This year, it looks like the total given statewide will break the $7 million dollar mark- the highest yet! (It was just over $6 million in 2020).
While the website is available to accept donations year-round, the annual online giving campaign takes place in early April each year. Donors can engage in a variety of ways, from setting up pre-scheduled or recurring donations, to utilizing the website search features to find nonprofits based on what is important to them (location, mission of the organization, and so on).
For 2021, AZPetVet partnered with Gabriel’s Angels and sponsored a donation power hour: We agreed to match any donations made between 4 & 5PM up to a total of $2,500. During our power hour, community members donated $3,585.20 – maxing out our contribution!
With the combined give, the funds raised will nearly sponsor two new pet therapy teams within Gabriel’s Angels! Each therapy team impacts an average of 80-100 children each year. We are proud to support the mission of Gabriel’s Angels as we all know the positive impact pets can have!
