Statewide Giving Day

The Arizona Grantmakers Forum and the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits coordinated a state-wide giving day to encourage donations to Arizona nonprofit organizations. The inaugural Arizona Gives Day, March 20, 2013, generated $928,541 in donations from 8,584 unique donors. Since 2013, Arizona Gives Day has raised more than $7 million for Arizona nonprofits. The Lodestar Foundation, along with other Arizona-based foundations, provided funding for infrastructure support of the premier Arizona Gives Day.
