Arizona Gives is excited to announce a new way for businesses to get involved in Arizona Gives Day (April 2) through employee giving landing pages. The customizable pages can be created with just a few clicks and will allow a business to share their philanthropic principles and encourage employees to donate to a local nonprofit on Arizona Gives Day.
How will it work? Businesses will register through AZGives.org and create their landing page. Just before and on Arizona Gives Day, the companies should send communication out to their employees, with a link to their dedicated landing page, encouraging their employees to donate to one or more nonprofit(s) of their choice.
At checkout, employees will select from a drop-down of participating businesses and select their employer’s name. Doing so will ensure donations are counted and tallied on the company’s employee giving landing page and the business leaderboard page showing everyone’s total.
Arizona Gives has also created a fun way for businesses with similar employee sizes to engage in friendly competition with other local companies, and you may even win some prize money for your favorite nonprofit.
Registration for the employee giving landing pages will begin in January. You can check out more details at AZGives.org.
Business leaderboards will be based on the following employee size categories:
About Arizona Gives & Arizona Gives Day
Arizona Gives Day — which is presented by FirstBank, one of the nation’s largest privately held banks with a focus on “banking for good” – raised $3.2 million in 2018 and has totaled more than $13.4 million since its 2013 inception. The statewide, 24-hour, online giving campaign takes place on April 2, 2019 and is hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and the Arizona Grantmakers Forum. Matson Money is the Platinum Sponsor.
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 and creating a thriving community for all.
Though Arizona Gives Day happens only once a year, Arizona Gives 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 check out as a guest and give immediately. Donors can also use our advanced search filters to find nonprofits by the criteria they choose, such as location, focus area or even which organizations qualify for an Arizona tax credit.
Any qualified 501(c)(3) 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.
