Arizona Gives Day helps raise awareness about Arizona nonprofits and the critical role they play in our communities and state. On April 3, the event will inspire people to give generously to nonprofits making our state stronger and creating a thriving community for all.
Arizona Gives Day is an opportunity to make a meaningful difference for hungry and homeless neighbors. And you just might help the Mission win up to $10,000 in prize cash, so we can provide even more help to our neighbors in need!
