PHOENIX – Arizona Gives Day, the annual event that raises money and awareness for the state’s nonprofits, returns this Tuesday.

The event is hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum and is presented by FirstBank.

The 24-hour fundraising event will begin at 12:01 a.m. and go until midnight on Tuesday.

Arizona Gives Day allows people to learn about each nonprofit involved and support the causes they believe in, according to the website.

The event raised $3.2 million in 2018 and has raised a total of $13.4 million since it began in 2013.

More than 700 Arizona nonprofits are involved in this year’s donation event.

Arizona Gives allows people to donate all year round, and donors can create an account to schedule donations or set up recurring donations.

“Arizona is home to more than 20,000 nonprofits that provide services we rely on every day,” Kristen Merrifield, CEO for the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits, said in a press release.

“Arizona’s nonprofits constitute a powerful, economic engine that generates $28 billion in revenue annually, on par with what is generated by the state’s construction sector.”

We want to hear from you.
