Arizona Gives Day is a statewide, grassroots day of giving that happens on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. (Arizona Time). Join thousands of other Arizonans and “invest in Arizona” by donating to your favorite charities.
Go to azgives.org to donate. You can search by category or enter the charity into the top of the page search box.
Some food related charities are:
- Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona (in Tucson)
- Green Valley-Sahuarita Food Bank
- Borderlands Food Bank (Santa Cruz county)
- Community Gardens of Tucson
- Iskashitaa Refugee Network
- Mobile Meals of Tucson
Arizona Gives Day connects causes and supporters in order to enrich and empower Arizona as a whole. The day also helps raise awareness about Arizona nonprofits and the important work they do in our community.
This year the goal is to raise more than $3 million for nonprofits across Arizona. On April 5, Arizonans are asked to donate to their favorite local cause or causes. If each Arizonan gave just $1, charities would raise more than $6 million.
Donations made through the Arizona Gives Day website (azgives.org) may be tax-deductible, may be matched, and are deposited directly into the bank accounts of the chosen nonprofits.
