What is Arizona Gives Day?
Arizona Gives Day is an annual day that of giving that allows people to positively affect their communities by supporting Arizona nonprofits. It is an annual giving movement that unites nonprofits to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Arizona. The statewide event also helps raise awareness about the critical role Arizona nonprofits play in our communities. Arizona Gives Day connects causes and supporters in order to enrich and empower Arizona as a whole.
The Hopi Foundation participates in AZ Gives Day, not only to fundraise and raise awareness for the work we do but also because part of our mission is to educate on and inject the culture of giving that is a major part of Hopi culture.
Since its inception in 2013, AZ Gives Day has raised over $17 million for Arizona nonprofits. Arizona Gives Day takes place on April 7th, 2020.
Why should I give for Arizona Gives Day?
As a nonprofit, our main function is to provide services to Hopi communities. Unlike a business, we do not function by selling goods or services. Much of the work we (and other nonprofits) do is provided at little to no cost to our community members.
To pay for the work we do -programs, grants, services, staff- we fundraise year-round, as well as spend hours researching, writing, and applying for grants. In essence, we have to fundraise to continue doing work for our Hopi communities. Hopi nonprofits depend on people like you to support their work in our community.
All donations made to a nonprofit through the Arizona Gives Day website give that nonprofit higher chances of winning additional cash prizes. There are multiple prize categories based on nonprofit size, location, and cause. Additionally, winning a prize means more recognition and awareness for that nonprofit.
