Today is Arizona Gives Day or #AZGivesDay for those of you active on the Twittersphere or any other social media application. This is a designated day for people and Arizona-based organizations to donate what they can to local charities and organizations to help support various communities-at-large.
About Arizona Gives Day
The Arizona Gives program is run by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum. The event was started in 2013 to connect people with causes they believe in and build a lasting, stronger spirit of philanthropy. Since it’s inception, Arizona Gives Day has raised more than $10.1 million for nonprofits statewide.
Arizona Gives does the following for the state by:
– Empowering Nonprofits in the area by donating millions of dollars since 2013
– Helping to make it easier for people to ‘pay it forward’ by housing many charitable options on their website
– Giving you the flexibility to support your cause “in-the-moment” or schedule a donation at a later date
By supporting Arizona Gives, businesses can enjoy these benefits:
– Clients will generally spend more money at businesses who are more charitable
– Increasing employee morale, especially when the organization’s philanthropy mindset is similar to their own employees’ ideals
– Boosting their marketing presence
– Helping the community
What Infinity Software Solutions is Doing for Continuing Charitable Efforts
At Infinity Software Solutions, we’re dedicated to being actively engaged in the community by supporting various charitable initiatives around the Valley. Last year, our organization set up a “Community Action Committee” for the company. This group is comprised of dedicated staff who meet once per month to discuss possible ways our organization can better the Arizona community.
The organizations Infinity Software Solutions is proud to support year-round include the following charities.
St. Mary’s Foodbank – St. Mary’s Food Bank is truly a community-based organization. They serve to alleviate hunger through the gathering and distribution of food while encouraging self-sufficiency, collaboration, advocacy and education. Individual donors, corporate donors, and private grants help feed hungry individuals and families for two-thirds of Arizona’s 15 counties.
Arizona Helping Hands – “One Child. One Dream. One Family at a Time.” Arizona Helping Hands assists foster families who have stepped up to provide a safe, loving environment for children in need. Their primary goal is to provide a new mattress to each child entering the foster system, but they also provide many basic needs for these boys and girls.
Pat’s Run – To support the Pat Tillman Foundation – 2018: Pat’s Run is the signature fundraising event to support the Pat Tillman Foundation’s Tillman Scholars program.
