About Arizona Gives
Improving Arizona Through the Power of Collective Giving
Arizona Gives and Arizona Gives Day is a collaboration between the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum that began in 2013. This partnership has helped raise more than $13.4 million for Arizona's nonprofit sector. This statewide, 24-hour, online giving campaign takes place in early April each year. The program is supported by our presenting sponsor FirstBank, along with a variety of other sponsor organizations.
Arizona Gives helps people find, learn about and contribute to the causes they believe in while enabling nonprofits to share their stories and engage the community through a unique online giving platform. Arizona Gives Day helps raise awareness about Arizona nonprofits and the critical role they play in our communities and state. It inspires people to give generously to nonprofits making our state stronger, creating a thriving community for all.
Though Arizona Gives Day only happens once a year, Arizona Gives (AZGives.org) is available for year-round giving. Donors can create an account to pre-schedule donations, set-up recurring donations and make changes to their giving throughout the year or they can checkout as a guest and give immediately. Donors can also used our advanced search filters to find nonprofits by the criteria they choose such as location, focus area or even which organization qualify for an AZ tax credit.
Any qualified 501c3 organization located in or providing services to Arizona can register to receive donations through AZGives.org. All nonprofit organizations are verified for eligibility before being allowed to participate on the website, ensuring that donors are giving to legitimate organizations. For eligibility requirements, visit the most current Terms of Service & Liability document.

About Arizona's Nonprofit Sector
Arizona nonprofits do much more than provide necessary services to our communities - they are an integral part of our state's economy. Annually, Arizona nonprofits have an economic impact of $22.4 billion, more than 8 percent of Arizona's gross state product. Arizona nonprofits also account for 325,000 jobs. Monetary donations are the most direct way to help a nonprofit make an impact and allow nonprofits to allocate funds where they are most needed.
