Arizona Gives is celebrating its 11th anniversary of the Arizona Gives Day event on April 4, 2023. Arizona Gives Day is a 24-hour online fund-raising event that encourages the public to ‘give it forward’ by donating to local 501c3 nonprofit agencies serving communities across the state. During this 24-hour period, there are also many cash incentive prizes awarded to participating nonprofits.

Arizona Gives helps people find, learn about, and contribute to the causes they believe in while enabling Arizona nonprofits to share their stories and engage the community though the online giving platform at

“Arizona Gives Day is an opportunity to learn about the good work nonprofits do every day in communities large and small and to expand their reach to potential new donors and even volunteers,” said Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits CEO Kristen Merrifield. “Donations of all sizes are encouraged.”

“The event also evens the playing field for all nonprofits, regardless of their size or whether they operate on a hyper-local or statewide basis — particularly for those that may not have the ability, the staff, or the bandwidth to take on a similar fund-raising challenge.”


Arizona nonprofits change lives every day. Every single donated dollar helps struggling men, women and children who benefit from services, resources and advocacy that social service agencies provide. Donations also impact our quality of life through programs, exhibits, shows and educational opportunities offered by arts and cultural organizations. These examples only scratch the surface of the good work being done across the state – there are so many more.
