Each March, Amplify Austin puts the focus on philanthropy in our city for a 24-hour period. Individuals create fundraisers to campaign for their most beloved nonprofits, while nonprofits campaign to attract the attention and donations of as many audiences as possible.
This year, we are thrilled to share that Any Baby Can earned nearly $215,000 during Amplify Austin, March 2 – 3, and placed FOURTH on the leaderboard from more than 650 organizations.
Involvement from our team members was more vital to our success this year than ever. In total, 51 board members, staff and volunteers created individual fundraising pages to share with their friends, families and colleagues the benefits of donating to Any Baby Can. And it worked! Among 30 staff members, nearly $20,000 was raised in just 24 hours.
Participation was fantastic across departments here at Any Baby Can. Natalie Russell, our Accounting Manager, raised $2,587 on her page for Any Baby Can, while Mary Harris, our Clinical Supervisor, earned the largest number of donations, tallied at 25.
In the weeks leading up to Amplify, team members shared their fundraising pages through Facebook and Instagram posts, Tweets, and emails with their personal networks. We are so appreciative of this commitment to Any Baby Can’s success.
