ARIZONA GIVES DAY - APRIL 2, 2019
GIVING SAVES LIVES!
WHAT IS ARIZONA GIVES DAY? Arizona Gives Day is a statewide, grassroots day of giving which takes place on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. (Arizona Time).
Visit Southwest Wildlife's Arizona Gives Day page. Our theme this year is “Giving Saves Lives" and in our video we share with you just a few of the lives that have been saved through that giving – one life at a time.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
1. Schedule a Donation!
Schedule a donation in advance or mark your calendar and make your gift on April 2. Every gift - big and small - makes a difference.*
2. Tell your Friends!
You can share your enthusiasm about the work that SWCC does for wildlife with your friends and family by sharing our social media posts, email reminders and, of course, by making a donation.
Visit SWCC’s Facebook page to watch our progress on April 2 and look for upcoming emails about Arizona Gives Day.
Use the hashtag #AZGivesDay to get even more reach when you share information.
3. Become a Fundraiser!
This year you can do even more to help the animals we all adore. When you log on to our Arizona Gives Day page, you can create your very own fundraising page to benefit SWCC on Arizona Gives Day! Plus, you’ll show up on SWCC’s Arizona Gives Page as a Fundraiser. When a recommendation to donate comes from someone you know, you are more likely to give.
4. Bonus Prizes - Power Hours!
Organizations can earn a variety of bonus prizes. On Arizona Gives Day 2019 (Tuesday, April 2) there will be 8 “Power Hours.” During specified times, non-profits can receive additional awards, based on the number of unique donors that give above a set dollar amount, within a specified 60-minute period. We’d like to focus on this time:
10:00-10:59 AM – Tuesday, April 2 – SWCC could earn an additional $2,500 in prize money if we have the most unique donations of $50 or more during that time!
You’re encouraged to donate any time before or during the actual giving day, but, if you’re planning to donate the morning of Arizona Gives Day on April 2, doing so between 10 and 10:59 AM might make an even greater impact for SWCC.
