Arizona Gives Day Has Raised $36.4 Million for Arizona Nonprofits Since 2013
Registration and re-enrollment will open November 1 for Arizona nonprofits interested in participating in the 24-hour online fundraising event, from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on April 4, 2023.
Since 2013, Arizona Gives Day has raised more than $36 million for nonprofits statewide. The event in 2022 generated more than $6 million in addition to pledges of 36,269 volunteer hours by 955 volunteers.

Arizona Gives Day unites nonprofits, big and small, new and established, to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Arizona through online giving. Arizona Gives Day helps raise awareness about the critical role Arizona nonprofits play in our communities and inspires people to give generously to create a thriving and stronger Arizona for all.
