March 25, 2015 - Arizona Gives Day, a celebration and call to donate for the state’s nonprofit organizations, will be held April 7. Arizona Gives day is a joint effort between Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and the Arizona Grantmakers Forum, who have helped raised more than $2 million for nonprofit groups from throughout the state.

Nonprofits and other various organizations are encouraged to share information on what they provide to the community on Arizona Gives Day and to use it as a platform to help garner greater attention and funds for their cause.

Organizations and individuals can visit the Arizona Gives Day website and start a fundraising campaign for the causes that they are particularly passionate about.

Arizona Resident Aaron Peace recently made a donation through Arizona Gives Day for his grandfather.

“He represented Arizona in so many different ways that I thought this was a great way to honor him,” Peace said.

Arizona Gives Day will be taking place for 24 hours starting at midnight on April 7. Those looking to donate or start a fundraising campaign for the event can visit the group’s website at For more information, contact
